Rum, Clairin & Cachaca

Sure why not expand the palate a little!

Rum is a distilled spirit made from sugar cane juice or molasses in many countries. There are hundreds of varieties. Below is a list of a few I’ve tried with links to my blog posts on the rum or manufacturers website.

Clairin is an artisinal spirit made in Haiti.

Cachaca is made in Brazil from sugarcane juice & has GI status.
