Fascinating, erudite and entertaining, this definitive account takes readers on a journey to rum's origins, from 1492 when Columbus brought sugar cane to the Americas and began a vast colonial enterprise that circled the globe, to mid-Seventeenth century Barbados, where a liquor made from distilled sugar cane was called Rumbullion', to the important role it played in the history of the slave trade in the 1500s, to how it helped sustain the British empire for 300 years. From the traditional daily ration of grog to the Mojito it truly shook our world!'
