Wikipedia Meaning and Definition on 'Rum'


Rum is a distilled alcoholic beverage made from sugarcane by-products such as molasses and sugarcane juice by a process of fermentation and distillation. The distillate, a clear liquid, is then usually aged in oak and other barrels.

The majority of the world's rum production occurs in and around the Caribbean and in several Central American and South American countries, such as Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Colombia, Venezuela, Barbados, Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago, Puerto Rico, Brazil, Haiti, Belize, Grenada, Guyana and Cuba. There are also rum producers in places such as Australia, Fiji, Mexico, the Philippines, India, Reunion Island, Mauritius and South Africa.

Light rums are commonly used in cocktails, whereas golden and dark rums are also appropriate for drinking straight, or for cooking. Premium rums are also available and are made to be consumed straight or with ice.
