Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between rum and white rum?
White rum is aged in stainless steel barrels. It is typically used to make cocktails such as Pina Coladas and Mojitos. Dark rum is aged in charred oak barrels and is aged longer to have a stronger taste. It is typically used for sipping and drinking straight because of its distinctive flavor.
Should rum be refrigerated?
Spirits like rum, whiskey, gin, and vodka do not need to be refrigerated. The high alcohol content preserves the integrity of the liquor and the sugar content preserves the flavor.
Does rum expire or go bad?
An unopened bottle of rum will last forever. Once the bottle has been opened it is recommended that you drink it within 6 months. Expired alcohol won’t make you sick but the taste will be duller , it might smell funny or have visual signs that it has spoiled.
