8 April - International Rum Day
Rum is the Oldest Spirit in the World. Rum Used to Be Really, Really Valuable. The name may have derived from rumbullion meaning “a great tumult or uproar”. Some claim that the name is from the large drinking glasses used by Dutch seamen known as rummers. Other options include contractions of the words saccharum, latin for sugar, or arôme, French for aroma.
The use of sugar cane distinguishes rum from all other liquors. Many of the early Caribbean rums were produced with molasses and "skimmings" from the production of sugar. The skimmings were obtained from the boiling of the sugar cane and were mixed with molasses and "dunder" (leftover sediment in the still).
The consumption of rum is often recommended for lowering cholesterol levels and managing diabetes. As per studies, in addition to having medicinal characteristics, it maintains low blood sugar levels in the body, thereby reducing the risk of diabetes.
