History of Rum Production in Antigua and Barbuda:
Antigua and Barbuda are two Caribbean islands, (Antigua, pronounced "An-tee'-gah" and Barbuda), that form a country that lies between the Caribbean Sea and the North Atlantic Ocean. Antigua and Barbuda is a Caribbean destination that is both exotic and luxurious. Here you will find a rich history to explore and some of the world's finest rums. Antigua's history of rum production dates back to the early 1700's when sugar was first introduced to the island and quickly became the main crops produced on its plantations. Sugarcane byproducts, such as molasses or honeys, or sugarcane juice, are the primary ingredients int he production of rum by a process of fermentation and distillation. The distillate, a clear liquid, is then aged in oak barrels, thus aiding in the creation of the Caribbean's world-wide sought after rum.
History of Rum Running in the Caribbean:
Throughout the Caribbean's colonial period, competition for rum sales and for the security that armed ships brought with them was fierce among the English Caribbean planters. The Caribbean island governors supported selling rum to the Royal Navy in hopes of the move helping to keep the pirates of the Caribbean at bay. Pirates often made extra money running rum to heavily taxes colonies in North American and the West Indies. As early as the 16th century, the British government employed "Revenue Cutters," small lightweight single-sail vessels to stop the pirates and smugglers.
