The Rule of Rum
Food historian Cynthia Clampitt shares the reason rum arose where it did and when it did, how pirates got involved, and who really said “yo ho ho” (not the pirates), but also how rum helped unite the 13 Colonies, why it became one of the issues that led to the American Revolution, how it also led to a revolt in its next home after the Caribbean: Australia, and how it affected culture and history after that. Registration required. 60 minutes.
