rum samaroli

It is believed that the first fermented beverages produced from sugarcane juice were produced in ancient India or China; in the 14th century, Marco Polo wrote about an "excellent sugar wine" he was offered in what is now Iran.
15th century documents report the first distillation in London of sugarcane from India, which was later replaced by raw material of American origin; in the 17th century, on-site production was begun by slaves on the Caribbean plantations.
The production of rum is currently widespread in many continental zones of Central and South America. A mixture of various casks of different ages is called blended; dated rum is obtained by blending several casks, but from the same year.
Samaroli Rums are produced from single casks selected one by one; each bottling is therefore necessarily dated. Another specific Samaroli feature is the maturation, carried out in Scotland, where the climate (cooler than in the Caribbean) enables longer ageing and consequently cleaner, clear-cut and more elegant rums.
Many trade members, including ourselves, are of the opinion that the regulations regarding indication of rum's age should be clarified, communicated and standardized to safeguard consumers.
