There was a time when rum was America’s currency.

Before she was a country, she was just a collection of rugged colonies.The imposition of colonial rule gave rise to the most successful revolution that the world has ever seen.

Rum—the original, native spirit of the American colonies, served to both fuel the revolt from tyranny & provide the currency to buy favor, reward privateers & celebrate victory.

This was the Golden Age of rum.
And right now, rum is having a renaissance.
