Rum is an old alcoholic drink that has been there since ancient times. It can be legally produced and enjoyed anywhere in the world. However, it is mostly associated with tropical and Caribbean countries because of their perfect climate for growing sugarcane required for rum making. Rum from this region is of the highest standards. This type of liquor was not first readily accepted and was thought to be a drink with a sore taste. Rum became one of the most popular spirits when an American mining engineer combined rum, lime juice, water, and sugar to make a mixed drink. This improved the taste which, was generally accepted. Drinks zone liquor shop has a wide range of this spirit, which we offer at unbeatable rates.

Types of rum
Categorizing rum in various sub-categories is complicated since no universal standard exists for what constitutes it. However, it can be categorized depending on the producing country's distinctive rules and laws, aging, or the liquor proof. The popular rum classifications are; light, dark, gold, premium, spiced, and flavored rum. Other additional categories are classified separately depending on their origin and producing region, which includes Solera, Rhum, and Anejo.
Dark rum:- is also known as brown or black is dark-colored. It is a rich full-bodied flavored liquor, normally distilled at a lower proof to allow it to keep more of its flavor and color. Dark rum provides a significant amount of calories and helps in keeping warm, hence it is mostly enjoyed by the elderly and armed forces. It is matured in casks or charred oak barrels for an extended period to give its dark golden hue and intensify its flavor profile.
Gold rums:- also known as amber rums are sweet but with a little punch, medium-bodied rums that are generally mellowed in wood barrels over time to achieve amber or golden hues. They have more flavor and are stronger-tasting than light rum, and are mostly used in cocktails when desiring a stronger flavor.
Light rums:- also referred to as silver, clear, or white rums, are colorless with very little flavor. Light rum is usually distilled at the very high proof of 170 and not more than 190 proof to give a clear dry, white spirit. Distilled water is added to bring the proof down to 80-90 proof. White rum is ready to be bottled without maturing, however, some manufacturers age it in plain oak barrels for at least six months and not more than a year. It can be filtered after aging to remove any color. Their milder flavors and youthful nature makes it popular among most mixers and find its way in many cocktails. It is often enjoyed with coke and sells more because of its youthful aging.
Premium Rum:- these are in a special market category and represent the finest matured rums, often blended to achieve complexity, more character, and distinctive flavors. They are generally darker in color with a rich tone. Like the finest spirits, this type of rum is best enjoyed straight, neat, or on the rock.
Spiced rums:- these types of rum are infused with spices usually from seeds, fruit, root, or leaf. The most used spices are ginger, pepper, vanilla, cinnamon, rosemary, cloves, absinthe/aniseed, and, sometimes, caramel.
Flavored rums:- these rums are infused with fruit flavors such as mango, cherry, pineapple, banana, mint orange, coconut, citrus, or lime. This rum is excellent for mixing to compliment the flavor profiles.
