Ed Hamilton on Rum

In the spring of '93 Ed Hamilton was preparing his first sloop Tafia for the annual pilgrimage south for hurricane season. A few days before setting sail he attended the monthly full moon party on a small island near St. Thomas. The discussion turned to the spirit in our glasses and to which island made the best rum. As the sun set and the golden moon rose over the horizon, Ed tipped his glass and decided to visit birthplaces of the Spirit of the Caribbean on my way south.

What he found was a lot more than he could have ever imagined that night in Culebra. Over one hundred and fifty rums between Puerto Rico and Trinidad! Two years later, with a lot of encouragement from the distilleries and just about everyone else I had met during that initial research, the first edition of Rums of the Eastern Caribbean was published. Ed joins The Guys to talk about this popular Island spirit.
