The subject of rum is a massive topic that spans hundreds of years of tradition and craftsmanship. It’s easy for rum novices and aficionados to be overwhelmed by the amount of information that’s out there about one of the world’s most diverse spirits. But help has arrived in the form of Joseph Piercy’s A Rum Tale: Spirit Of The New World.
Part drinks guide, part love letter, A Rum Tale takes the reader on a voyage through the fascinating history of rum. From quirky facts like George Washington’s obsession with Barbados rum, to the story of notorious figures like Captain Henry Morgan, the book contains a wealth of boozy insight.
