People who viewed Rum have also been interested in:
Made from a fermented "wash" of molasses and water, rums from Barbados are known for their light, sweet character. Distilled in either pot or column stills, rums from this region were first produced after the British settled the island in 1627.
The most famous producer of this style of rum is Mount Gay, which was established in 1663.
According to some sources, in 1637, Dutch émigré Pietr Blower brought cane seedlings and distillery equipment to Barbados. A traveler to the island Henry Colt noted that Barbadians were devourers upp of hott waters and such good distillers thereof. Production was probably small at that point. Sugar cane seedlings were originally imported from Brazil.
