Traditionally relegated to cloying cocktails or tropical-themed novelty drinks, rum is undergoing a global renaissance. Bryce Bauer charts the historical and cultural journey of rum from its origins in the Caribbean, to its long-held status as a cheap vacation drink, to today's inspiring craft revival. Illustrated throughout with period art and contemporary photos, this book also includes a producer-focused drinks guide, covering dozens of the world's most innovative and iconic producers, making everything from Martinique rhum agricole to long-aged sippers from Barbados and the Dominican Republic.
