Elegant and flavorful rums from Barbados
Largo Bay rums are produced by the West Indies Rum Distillery Ltd. on the island of Barbados. Established in 1893, this distillery remains locally owned and prides itself on its quest to be the most modern distillery of the region. Its Largo Bay rums are made in classic gold and silver styles, as well as in spiced and flavored varieties. These elegant and fruity rums add the flavor of the islands to any mixed drink.
Rum, distilled from sugar cane or its byproducts, is synonymous with the island life. Sugar cane and rum production spread throughout the Caribbean after 1493, when Christopher Columbus brought sugar cane cuttings to the region. The plant was quick to flourish in the heat and humidity of the Caribbean region.
By the 1600s, island-made rums were in demand in England and its colonies. Part of the drink’s popularity is attributed to the Royal Navy, which gave its sailors daily rations of rum. That tradition lasted more than 300 years, until 1970.
