"When we talked about the atmosphere that we wanted to create for the Hotel, we naturally decided to create a Rum Bar."
HISTORY & PRODUCTION
After the importation of Asian sugar cane into the West Indies in 1493 by Christopher Columbus, the origin of rum is still shrouded in a veil of mystery. The first known traces of the drink date back to the first half of the 17th century. The rum would have been born on the island of Barbados in the Caribbean. It was then mainly consumed by slaves, sailors and pirates.
- Agricole rum: entirely obtained from sugar cane juice. Its alcohol level varies from 40 ° to 60°
- Traditional rum: distilled from molasses (a syrup from the refining of sugar). It represents 90% of rum production.
- Blended rum: made from molasses, syrup or cane juice.
