Rum – a complex and versatile product
Rum is a spirit exclusively derived from the distillation of sugar cane. It can be more or less sweet, depending on its country of origin. Martinique Rum, for example, a huge favourite among those with a delicate palate, has a very fruity taste. Its Jamaican cousin, on the other hand, is a lot more acrid, but adds more body to a blend. There are also different types of rum: 
• White rum, with a light and sweet taste, which is ideal in cocktails such as rum & coke (cuba libre);
• Gold or amber rum, which is medium-bodied due to the relatively short aging process in casks;
• Dark rum, which is aged in oak vats for several years, which gives it a strong flavour;
• Agricultural rum, distilled at a slightly lower temperature from fresh sugar cane juice, mainly in the French West Indies;
• Spiced rum, enhanced with aromas or fruit for additional notes of flavour.
