Rum's Fourteen Most Interesting People

     Wednesday the Caribbean Journal announced its 14 most interesting people.  This is the inaugural  selection and there are some very interesting if you will people on the list.   The Caribbean Journal is one of the most influential papers in all of the Caribbean and I am sure that they put some effort into their picks.

     "Who are the most interesting people in the rum industry? It’s not an easy question to answer, of course. At Rum Journal, our chief mission is to raise the level of conversation about rum to the way people around the world treat fine wine or other spirits. And so to answer this question, we focused on one primary definition of interesting: that is, who are the people who are helping to showcase the beauty, romance and wonder of rum — and doing their part to raise the global interest level in the Caribbean’s signature spirit? These are our picks for the inaugural Most Interesting People in Rum list."


     It was an honor to be listed as one of the lists members, many of these people have been so helpful to me over the years to glean information about the spirits of the sugarcane and I am proud to call many of them my friends.  Thanks again to The Caribbean Journal for making me a part of this list. ;o)
