The Epic Story of the Drink That Conquered the WorldBook - 2005
In this sweeping volume, Charles Coulombe explores the fascinating origins and far-reaching legacies of the drink that kept the British Navy afloat for 300 years' while establishing a colourful reputation as a mainstay of buccaneers, revolutionaries and trendsetters. From rum's role in the Boston Tea Party to its dubious distinction as the centre of the soul-crushing colonial Triangle Trade, here is the uncorked truth about the beverage that altered world history. Spiked with tantalising recipes, Rum is intriguing, informative and utterly intoxicating.'
