Rum plays up _ and ignores _ its Caribbean roots

Rum Weekend in Miami

Geography isn’t what it used to be, not by any stretch of the imagination in any context.  Good Rum is made all over the world.  Thus, when you’re talking about rum, how much does the Caribbean really matter?

For the rum world, it’s a more serious question than it sounds, and the answer exposes a schism in the industry, a divide between massive producers who value uniformity in a global market and smaller players and connoisseurs who prefer nuanced production that reflects the time and place a rum is made.

Need plans this weekend?  Miami Run Renaissance Festival could be the ticket, if that’s your sort of thing.
