Caribbean sugar plantations had a serious problem on their hands—an oversupply of industrial waste in the form of molasses. Clearly, 17th century planters weren’t up to snuff on their gingerbread cookie recipes. As a result, they were left with more molasses than they knew what to do with. Turns out, slaves on these Caribbean sugar plantations had a solution for all that sludge: fermentation. Through a bit of tinkering, the result of this process yielded the drink you know and love today—Rum.
