Rum has its roots in the countries of South America and the Caribbean Islands. There is a wide range of different varieties that are typical of these areas. Rum is usually made from sugarcane molasses. Molasses is the honey-like dark brown sugar syrup which is a byproduct of sugar production. Molasses still contains about 50% sugar, which can not be crystallized anymore.
