Rums originated in the West Indies and are first mentioned in records from Barbados in about 1650. They were called “kill-devil” or “rumbullion” and by 1667 were simply called rum. Rum was an important commodity and drink in Colonial America. Rum was often enjoyed in a “Toddy” mixed with sugar (sometimes spices were used by those who could afford them) and hot water. These homemade variations of the toddy were likely America's first Rum cocktails. Join us to learn all about Rum and its classic cocktails.
