Jamaican Rum – an integral part of life on Jamaica. Yamaica consider rum panacea from all troubles. The number of so-called "bars" or glass ranks first in the world.
In antiquity, Jamaica inhabited Indians. The island was opened by Christofore Columbus in 1494. He called him in honor of the royal couple Ferdinand and Isabella Island. This name did not stick, the island has retained the local name – Jamaica. The first settlement on the island of the Spaniards founded in 1509.
The number of indigenous people of Jamaica in the Spaniards rapidly fell. Therefore, the Spaniards at the beginning of the XVI century began to import black-slaves from Africa to Jamaica. But the Spanish domination lasted not long, Jamaica was not considered a promising colony and in 1655 it was captured by the British (officially Jamaica was announced by the British colony in 1670). The British turned into a large "sugar" colony – on Jamaica, the plantations of sugar cane were intensively developed. Industry of Jamaica produced sugar and famous Jamaican rum. Roma’s success in this country is primarily associated with sugar, and therefore cheap raw materials for the production of Jamaica Roma. It is from here on most Yamaican Romes English-speaking names.
As an independent drink, Rum got his spread in the XVII century – during the times of flibusers, slave traders, treasures and colonizers. In those days, people tried not to use fresh water, t.To. she caused fatal diseases. Flibusters consumed a huge amount of this drink. To this day, the best Roma varieties make just where the gentlemen of good luck, and the names of some Roma brands wear the names of famous flibusers. The most famous of them – "Captain Morgan"
Rum "Captain Morgan "carries the name of the famous Pirate of the XVII century and part-time Governor of Jamaica Sir Henry Morgana. Henry Morgan forever entered the story not only as a famous pirate, Jamaica governor, but also as a big connoisseur of the real Jamaican Roma. He was the first one who introduced rum to the mandatory diet of his team – a rule that later became the tradition of all English fleet.
In the production of sugar, the cane is crushed and press juice from it. Juice is subject to long boiling. As a result, the liquid evaporates and the cane sugar is obtained. However, the blown of the Patok remains, T.N. Black Patok (Melassa). It is she who serves the raw material for the production of Jamaica Roma. Distilled water and yeast add to melassia. Now the mixture is left for fermentation by 15-20 days.
This is followed by distillation, which can be carried out in a distillation column or in distilted Cuba. Jamaican Rom will be much varied by properties depending on the used equipment used. In a copper cube, a drink retains his caramel smell, it remains bouquette, natural, has a pleasant sunny shade. Rectified by Jamaica Rom is cleaner, transparent, but loses most of his flavor. One-time distillation makes both types of Jamaici Rom cheaper, and a pleasant shade of caramel liking provided him with great popularity in the times of pirates and planters.

Hence the name – "London Dock Ram" ("London Dock Rum"). The most traditional varieties of the Yamaici Roma are subjected to double cleaning in distillation cubes, and the characteristic features of the drink depend on the addition of the production of the so-called Dunder at one or another stage. Dunder is a part of the victorious wort, which remained from the previous distillation, which is added to fresh wort to strengthen the process of natural fermentation. Something similar can be found in the manufacture of sour wort for whiskey and the production of some special varieties of beer.
