History of Rum

Author & Writer Ian Williams


Ian Williams
Author/Correspondent

Ian Williams has been a judge at the Polished Palate Annual Rum Competition for three years. Ian authored ‘ Rum: A Social and Sociable History of the Real Spirit of 1776’. This often rollicking page-turner, quite an achievement for a non-fiction ‘thriller’, traces the root of all rums (rhums, cachacas, aguardientes) from the first planting of sugar cane. Ian Williams describes his subject as the "Global Spirit with its warm beating heart in the  Caribbean." Williams traces the uniquely Caribbean origins of rum, "the common factor for the whole region, Spanish, Portuguese, English, French, Dutch or Papiamento-speaking."
