My late father would wholeheartedly agree with me!
Rum production started here sometime in the late 15th century when the Spanish settlers introduced sugar cane cultivation and the art of distillation to Jamaica. With fertile soil and a perfect climate, Jamaica proved to be ideal for sugar cane to flourish.
The pristine mountain springs and underground aquifers of limestone filtered water were used for rum production. The success of the rum production in Jamaican motivated many of the other English as well as French and Dutch colonies in the region to begin experimenting with distilling sugar cane juice.
It is said that by the 17th Century, there were distilled spirits throughout the region and Jamaica gained the enviable reputation of being the source of the finest rum in the world.
Appleton Estate in Jamaica now has the enviable and celebrated reputation of being the best producers in the world of some of these rums. They have won many awards in this regard.
I read somewhere that we now also produce the widest variety in the world!
