New Article on the History of French Colonial Rum Production

September 30, 2017

Hey folks,

Have you ever wondered why French Caribbean producers make rum from cane juice rather than molasses? Me too. I mean I’d heard and read various accounts of the motivations for the switch, but the more I dug into it, the more clear it became that the answer was far more multifaceted than I’d been led to believe.

So for the past couple of weeks, I’ve dug into my rum resource books and scoured the Web for information and compiled it all for myself. First in this massive 400 year timeline of events that shaped the French Caribbean rum industry, and today in a 2,100 word article. It’s a big departure form my normal writing, but I hope you enjoy it. Read the article here.

Cheers,
Josh
