How do you make rum?

Rum is made using only three ingredients: molasses from sugarcane, yeast and water. Ingredients are fermented, then distilled, aged, filtered and blended.

What is the difference between dark, gold and white rum?

Rum is a wonderfully complex and diverse spirit. Color can give us clues about time spent aging or the flavours that might be found within. Dark can be bold, sweet (or dry) and even smoky, gold is rich and soothing, and white is smooth, subtle and often refreshing.
But color can be misleading. The best way to truly understand a rum is to taste it for yourself.
