What is the History of Rum?

Rum was first produced in the Caribbean countries in the 17th century. The sugar plantations were maintained by slaves who had been brought to the Caribbean from Africa by the British.

They distilled crude and harsh rum as early as 1647 in small pot stills in the sugarcane fields. In those days, it was consumed without maturing and was the drink of the English pirates and the British Navy. Today, the term ‘Gorg‘ in beverage service generally means rum with water.
