Do you wake up every morning and drink a glass of water? Swap the water for rum and you might as well call yourself an islander! Caribbean rum is the lifeblood of good times and bad here on St Thomas and St John. Locals don’t drink to get drunk, though. (Ok, most locals don’t.)
Our rum is so good and inexpensive here in the Virgin Islands that we just can’t help ourselves. When it’s cheaper than milk and sourced on local soil, it’d be foolish not to embrace our natural resources.
Rum is an Island Artform (and Dare We Say Healthier than an Apple?)
Oh yeah, we went there. Traditional, pure Caribbean rum boasts serious health benefits. One tour of a rum factory here in the islands and you’ll understand why the distilling processes are so special. Islanders make rum in these small factories with fresh sugar cane or molasses and oak barrels used for generations.
Great rum is smooth, full-flavored and delicious. It doesn’t just taste dang good, though. Rum consumed responsibly can increase good cholesterol, prevent heart attacks, decrease muscle pain and make your bones stronger. Seriously, we could go on and on about the impressive health benefits.
One of our favorite perks of a shot or two of rum is that it fights the common cold. Next time you feel a little under the weather, check out the STOCKED pre-mixed cocktail kits. A glass of rum a day keeps the doctor away… or something like that.
