FAQs

White rum is also called 'silver rum' or 'light rum'. It's a blonde colored rum, either unaged, or aged for about a year, sometimes less, in steel tanks. The tanks give it that notable light color, while maintaining a light body and sweet taste that rum is known for. Light rum is that light color due to its short aging period. The longer rum ages (especially if in a wooden cask) the darker it will become. Light rum is ideal for cocktails like mojitos and piña coladas.
