Join food and drink historian Tonya Hopkins for a great evening sampling 5 of today’s top sipping rums, nibbling Caribbean-style snacks and some taking in some engaging history!
Drawing on West African traditions, enslaved people in the Caribbean integrated rum into resistance efforts during the Age of Revolution. The social and spiritual meanings of alcohol were modified and revived on the sugar estates, and rum-based oath drinks cemented alliances, so rum also offers a view into the revolutionary uprisings that accelerated the emancipation of enslaved peoples throughout the Atlantic world.
