No one can doubt that the Caribbean rums are the worlds most famous either for their high quality or its long tradition. But we cannot deny that there are a lot of rum around the world who may not have the same tradition, but their quality has won an important place in the world of rum.
If we talk about outside the Caribbean rums, we must mention first South American ones, and the Europeans, but also the ones in North America, Asia, Africa and Oceania.
South America Rum
The 3 countries highlighted in South America are Colombia, Venezuela and Peru. Although Venezuela is considered a Caribbean country, much of its production is done far from the Caribbean waters. The main rums are the Colombians, among them, the Ron Viejo de Caldas, Old San Juan Rum, Cauca Rum and Santa Fe Rum. In Venezuela, rum is one of the most drunk distillates, emphasizing Diplomático Rum, Rum Santa Teresa and Cacique. In Peru, together with Pisco, rum is one of the distilled drinks, more drunk, even beating the consumption of their national drink, here highlights the Rum Cartavio.
In the old continent, the French rums stand up as well as the Spanish and English rums.
In Spain the "Ron" is made with molasses, but keeping the same style as elaborated in America. They are also good quality rums such as Santa Cruz, Ron Pálido Montero, Ron Arehúcas and the popular Ron Miel from the Canaries. The Spanish rum is very similar to the Caribbean rum.
In England, rum is made from molasses, since a long time, that's why there are so many english rums. Including the highlighted British rum produced in its colonies such as Barbados, Bermuda, Belize, Guyana and many more in the Caribbean.
French "rhums" are made from sugar cane. Although the french rhum consumption is not really high, so it is its reputiation. Like the English, we have to include those made in its colonies such as Martinique, Guadeloupe La Union and others.
