Description

Rum Curious takes the you on a tour of the world of rum by teaching you how to taste and appreciate all of its glorious variety.

Once the drink of sailors and swashbuckling pirates, rum is the most versatile--and the most varied--spirit in the world. It is consumed neat as a sipping drink, on the rocks, and in a dizzying variety of cocktails, like the mai tai, mojito, and pina colada.

In Rum Curious, author Fred Minnick first takes you on a whirlwind tour of the world of rum, describing its many styles; explaining the great variety of fermenting, distilling and maturing processes; and highlighting distillers and distilleries. Minnick explains the finer point of how to properly taste rum -- how to reveal the experience offered by brands ranging from the familiar to the unusual and obscure.

The book's final section is a highly curated collection of recipes for classic and innovative rum cocktails from around the world. Rum Curious is the one book the reader will need to understand and appreciate rum in all its glorious variety.
