    Rum is made through a beautifully varied and elaborate process: we call it by different names based on the time it has spent ageing in wooden casks. To become gold, rum needs to age for a long period of time, acquiring a rich tone and softer flavour profile. White rum, on the other hand, is not always aged; when it is, it is filtered through charcoal to remove any colour, for a crystal-clear appearance.
