A toast to National Rum Day

This year’s National Rum Day (Aug. 16) finds rum cast in a new light. A spirit that seemed to be left out of the party as other spirits categories saw change, rum is now dancing under the disco ball.

Craft rums and aged rums are suddenly hot as rum importers are targeting the same people who collect premium tequila and whiskey. The opening of travel and trade to Cuba also casts a light on Cuban rum. And the ongoing tiki cocktail renaissance means a rum emphasis at the bar.

So today, on National Rum Day, let’s toast to the many pleasures of this Caribbean-inspired, sugarcane-sourced spirit.
