Rum

Rum is a category of spirits that includes products made from molasses, sugarcane juice, or other sugarcane byproducts. The word "rum" comes from the Spanish word "ron," which means "strong." Rum is thought to have originated in the Caribbean Islands, where it was first distilled from sugarcane in the 17th century.

Today, rum is produced all over the world, and there are many different types of rum available. Some popular brands of rum include Bacardi, Captain Morgan, and Havana Club. Rum is often used in cocktails, and some popular rum cocktails include the Mojito and the Daiquiri.

Rum can be purchased online from Hello Drinks. An independent Australian Liquor Superstore operating in the cloud, and bringing thousands of drinks to its customers.

Buy Different Types of Rums

Are you a big fan of Rum? If yes, then it is important to know about the different types of Rum that you can taste. At Hello Drinks Superstore, you can find different varieties of Rum at affordable prices.

Lets take a look at the different types of Rum:

  • Aged Rum: This type of Rum has a bronze colour that comes from the cask itself. Also, caramel is an additive that gives the Rum a rich deep colour to Gold Rum.
  • Dark Rum: The dark colour of the Rum comes from the third distillation. It is strong to drink with a deeper colour. Dark Rums can be flavoured with desired spices and coconut to bring a richer taste.

  • Light Rum: Light Rum is also known as silver or white Rum. Producers of this Rum filter the liquor until it's free from impurities. They have a sweet but subtle flavour.

In addition to the above-mentioned Rums, there are other types too including, English Rum, Spanish Rum, and French Rum.

Check out some best Rums to try!

The best light Rum is the Plantation 3 Star White Rum for those who go the other way. It acts as a tribute to its Caribbean roots with brown sugar, honey, coffee, and the spicy kick of vanilla and cloves - a bittersweet and light-bodied Rum.

For connoisseurs of dark Rum, Goslings Black Seal Rum is the best choice. You can't make a decent Dark and Stormy without the rich and intricate flavour profile of butterscotch, vanilla, and caramel. It's the perfect marriage of flavour and elegance.

Those looking for a lesser strain on their wallet but still want to enjoy quality Rum can choose Bacardi Carta Blanca White Rum. A popular choice for cocktails with a distinct floral and fruity note. It's light, aromatic, with hints of vanilla and almonds.

Light Rums are commonly used in cocktails, whereas "golden" and "dark" Rums are typically consumed straight or neat, iced "on the rocks". Further, light Rum can be used in cooking too.

What is Rum Made of?

Rum is made from distilled sugar cane molasses, aged in a wooden (usually oak) barrel, typically for two years, but it varies according to climatic factors. Did you know? The earliest records of Rum go back to the 1600s. In Indonesia, a drink called the 'Batavian Arrack' is made from sugarcane molasses mixed with the mash of locally grown red rice. This mixture is what is known as 'Proto-Rum'.

Whether made from sugar cane juice or traditional molasses, the distillation process is the same. First, the liquid of choice is mixed with water and cultured with yeast. This produces the wash' - a substance that resembles beer and has about 5 to 10% alcohol. Then the Rum distillery uses this wash to distil the finer spirit of Rum.

Many brands and countries require rum to be aged for at least one year in bourbon casks, wooden casks, or stainless steel tanks. The colour of Rum is determined by the ageing process.

When aged in oak casks, it becomes dark, and when aged in stainless steel tanks it remains colourless.

You can shop from 100+ varieties of Rum from top-shelf liquor of Bundaberg, BenRalch, Glenfiddich to popular brands Captain Morgan, Goslings, and more. Hello Drinks Superstore has high-quality alcohol for all tastes and occasions.

Also, we offer a wide range of spice Rums that are perfect for every palate. Try Coconut flavoured Rums to create an amazing cocktail for your guests. Give your tongue a new taste with our high-quality spice Rum. Buy a bottle now!

Which is Better: Light Rum or Dark Rum?

This is a matter of preference. Dark Rum is rich, smooth, and full-bodied. This is because it is typically distilled for longer. Sometimes the barrels they are aged in are charred so they can have a smoky quality to the Rum and deepen the colour.

Lighter Rum or white Rum tends to be aged for a shorter duration. It is usually distilled in steel barrels made of stainless steel. It is light-bodied, with a crispness to its taste and fruity flavour. It's perfect, perfect cocktails.

If you're looking for a happy medium, the Gold Rum is a good middle ground. Thanks to its memorable golden hue and its suitability to any cocktail, it is perfect for any occasion. If you want a heavier, richer palate or a lighter, fruitier palate. With Gold Rum, you can offer a satisfactory medium for cocktails.

No matter if you love light Rum or dark Rum, Hello Drinks Superstore has the best brands for you.

What is a Good Rum for Beginners

As a beginner, having good quality Rum is pretty essential. You can either sip Rum on ice neat, or you can choose to go the cocktail route. Either way, you need a Rum worthy of that first taste.

For those new to Rum, we would recommend tasting Havana Club Anejo 3 year old. With a heady blend of citrus, cream, and spice, it will wrap around your senses with an exquisite aftertaste.

Another recommendation would be the El Dorado 12 Year Rum. It tastes like chocolate and port-wine. The palate of the Rum tends to be a smooth, spicy, cooling note dissolving into a sweet and smoky aftertaste.

If you aren't vibing with Rum, you can always opt for a gift box of spirits for your friends and family to try with each other.

Try Rum Cocktails

Now that you know how Rum is made, it's time to discover how many ways you can enjoy it. We've compiled a list of mixers and Rum Cocktails for you to steadily work through beginning with a classic tropical punch.

The secret to a truly exceptional punch is in its combination of both sweet and sour flavours. This traditional punch recipe uses a rich golden Rum like the Bacardi Carta Oro Superior Gold as its base with a dash of grenadine syrup and Angostura bitters.

You can even use an Angostura Rum instead of the Bacardi, ensuring you pick a syrupy golden tipple for this fabulously fruity punch. Combine your liquids with freshly squeezed orange juice, freshly squeezed lime juice, sugar syrup, nutmeg, and then serve over ice.

You can order cocktail mixes from Hello Drinks Superstore.

What Flavours Go Best With Rum?

While Rum still carries the image of sailors and pirates, it still hasn't stopped us from making cocktails and mixers with Rum.

As with other spirits (Gin, Whisky, and Vodka), the mixer's taste will depend on the Rum you choose. Common mixing agents include ice, lime, and cola. If you're inclined to a sweet, fruity taste, you should go with apple juice or even coconut water to enhance the flavour. If you're in the mood for something bubbly and carbonated, ginger beer and ginger ale is the way to go.

Can you buy non-alcoholic spirits?

Yes! Hello Drinks Superstore has a vast assortment of non-alcoholic spirits available online for purchase.

Which Rum is Best For Cake?

Rum cake wouldn't be a tasty and real rum cake without rum, right? But, to make a tasty cake, you need to use the quality Rum available at Hello Drinks Superstore.

Dead Man's Fingers Coconut Rum is an excellent Rum to use for baking cakes. The coconut notes in the Rum enhance the flavour of the cake and lend it a sweeter taste. It can also make your cake more moist and delicious.

Another good option for baking is Malibu White Rum. You can use the light, refreshing taste of the Rum to make the cake batter. It can add additional flavour and can improve the texture of the cake. Moreover, it can even change the consistency of the cake.

Another way to level up your cake is to incorporate Rum into the spices and nuts you love. For example, you can add walnuts, almonds, apricots, cashews, and cherries. This will elevate the taste of your Rum cake many times.
