A brief rum overview

Posted on by


When it comes to spirits, many people think that the only difference is taste. And what is interesting about that is the unique way in which alcoholic beverages are brewed. What makes rum so interesting is the fact that it is one of the few spirits brewed using sugar.

Rum is distilled using molasses, sugar cane, and other sugar-based products before it is aged in a barrel for a certain number of years. It is this process that gives it its sweet taste and ability to be infused with a wide variety of flavors. Unlike other spirits which use mash, rum is almost purely distilled sugar, making it one of the most pure forms of alcohol.

Born of sugar

Rum is one of the best drinks for mixing due to its inherent purity in being made from sugar. In some ways, it is unique in the way in which it is distilled, drawn from sweet substances and aged over long periods of time. In fact, rum on average is aged for twice as long as other spirits. It is this that gives it its rich taste and ability to be mixed with virtually any other drink for a crisp, refreshing experience.

Much like my other favorite forms of alcohol, rum, in its purest form provides a taste and versatility that few other spirits have to offer. The next time you are thinking of exploring the wide world of spirits, consider rum and all of its taste and versatility.

What makes rum unique?

People often ask me why rum is my favorite drink, to which my response is almost always “because it is”. While this might sound like a curt way of describing it, it is actually a way to illustrate a deeper way of appreciating not only rum, but spirits as a whole.

My response is somewhat of a dichotomy, in that rum is not always my drink of choice, but rather one that I can always fall back on if I’m looking to share my expertise with others. Rum has its own unique way of being brewed, and also its own unique way that it makes people feel.

A drink of choice

Rum, brewed all over the world is often considered one of the most unique and versatile spirits on the planet. From mixed drinks to straight or on the rocks, rum provides people with many options depending on their mood and lifestyle.

From a cheap brand to the classiest of brands, rum has always been something that I was able to afford and was able to scale with my income. Of course I don’t always say all of this in conversation, but I want to.


The reason that I decided to make this site was to share my love and knowledge of rum. However, throughout the years, I have realized that drink has its own caveats and reasons to like it. Keep reading for tips on how to enjoy different spirits as well as what makes them unique.

If you are like me, you have seen people around you experience negative life situations as a result of drinking. In fact, most people know someone that has suffered greatly as a result of alcohol. Whether it is a freak car accident, death, disease, or just a night that needed an apology, there is no debate that drinking can be dangerous.

At Rum Club, we focus on the fun and social benefits to enjoying spirits responsibly. When reading the content contained within this blog, remember that it is our goal to share information with readers while remembering to always drink responsibly.

What that means

In short, drinking responsibly is something that everyone should do and come to their own conclusions about. Drinking responsibly for one person is not the same as drinking responsibly for another, so it is important to know one’s limits as an individual.

Chances are, anyone that has experimented with spirits has had too much to drink at one time or another. There is nothing wrong with this, but truly appreciating spirits means knowing your limits and staying in control while consuming alcohol.


We will be covering a lot about rum and alcohol and understand that it can be dangerous to consume. Our goal is not only to highlight how much fun enjoying spirits with friends and family can be, but also understanding how dangerous it can be as well. When reading, always remember that drinking responsibly is the number one thing to remember when having fun.
