Rum is an alcoholic beverage produced from the by-products of sugar cane (mainly molasses and sugarcane juice), undergoing fermentation and distillation. The final product usually contains 40% alcohol and has a strong smell and a slightly sweet taste. Rum is produced mostly in the Caribbean and South America and also the former French colony in the Indian Ocean. Common types of rum: dark rums that have a rich flavor and a thicker texture, golden rums that have a medium body and are generally aged, and light )also “silver” or “white”) rums that have bright color and are most often used for mixing cocktails because of their milder flavors.
