Discover the extraordinary spirit known as rum in all its delicious varieties

From the Caribbean and the first American colonies of the seventeenth century came rum, a liquor made from distilling sugar cane or molasses. This celebration of the drink introduces you to its history and production methods, as well as the different styles (Spanish, British, Jamaican, French) existing today. Forty profiles tell the stories of the most famous brands, tracing their characteristics, describing their taste and color, and using them in an ideal recipe. A final section presents a selection of classic and innovative rum cocktails, with all the directions you need to prepare them.
