Golden Rums

Recommended Posts

In regards to the Publican article, I would like to see more variety in white rum (at least locally). When I go to the liquor store, the selection is predominitely gold and dark rums. My only choices for white are Bacardi, Captain Morgans, and Havana Club (large size).

Nice to know that they anticipate the trend moving towards gold spirits though.

I'm a little confused by that article, but think the last person interviewed has the right idea. Bacardi and the others are talking about gold rums, which is a little self-serving. Certainly gold rum as a subset of the rum industry is going to grow as the whole industry grows, and since the gold rum subset is small it has the potential to show great growth percentages. I for one don't consider Captain Morgan Spiced Rum a gold rum. But then I wouldn't call Appleton VX a gold rum and certainly put it in the same class as Captain Morgan.
