- Ideas for a cocktail?
- Which beer is ideal for an Irish aperitif?
- What is the difference between agricultural rum and traditional rum?
There are 2 types of rums: agricultural rums, which are derived directly from sugar cane, and traditional rums, made from molasses, a residue of cane sugar used for the production of sugar.
- What are the types of rums?
We can classify rums into 3 categories: white rums, which are the mildest with a light body, ideal for cocktails; amber rums, with a more aromatic profile, also used for cocktails or in cooking but can be enjoyed pure; and old rums, fruity and vanilla, which, as their name suggests, have aged for at least 3 years in oak barrels.
- What is the difference between rhum, rum and ron?
We speak of rhum for the French style, made in the Overseas Departments and Territories with a fine, floral and fruity profile. The rum is of British origin and has a heavier and spicier profile. As for ron, the most consumed in the world, it is of the Spanish tradition and made from molasses with a generally softer and sweeter profile.
- What is the difference between whisky and Cognac?
While Cognac and whisky both come from the extraction of sugar to be transformed into alcohol, their difference lies in the raw material. Whisky is made from grain (barley, corn, wheat) while Cognac, like its cousin Armagnac, is made from grapes and is mainly produced in France.
