Rum Production

The process of making rum typically starts with harvesting and crushing sugarcane to extract its juice or byproduct, molasses.

Yeast is then added to the juice or molasses to begin the fermentation process, which converts the sugar into alcohol.

After fermentation, the resulting liquid is distilled to increase the alcohol content and create a more concentrated and refined product. The rum is then aged in oak barrels to enhance its flavor and color.

The final product can vary in color and taste depending on the type of sugarcane or molasses used, the fermentation process, the distillation technique, and the aging conditions. Types of rums are aged in barrels depending on the intended final product. Darker rums take considerably longer to age, in turn giving way to enhanced flavor profiles.
