Global Craft Rum Market – Introduction

  • Craft rum and spirits have gained popularity in recent years due to widespread advertisements, blogs, and multiple reviews in newspapers, magazines, and journals by connoisseurs of alcohol. Social media posts are influencing the change in type of consumption of alcohol, and craft rum is gaining acceptance in culturally advanced societies. Craft distilleries produce rum on a small-scale basis and are more quality oriented than commercial distilleries where the production is carried out on a larger scale. The fermentation and distillation process entails adding more flavors, and better taste and pleasurable experiences, especially for regular alcohol drinkers, by giving them a new cocktail. Craft rum is smoother in taste and is taken care of by bartenders having a hand in the entire process and who are aware of unique production processes.

Why Craft Rum Is Getting Weird

Manufacturers focusing on drinking standards and consumption habits of people, thus controlling excessive craft rum intake

Increased emphasis is laid by these companies on monitoring the intake of alcohol and modern craft spirits and rums, and they do so as a part of mindful lifestyle. Going by drinking standards, the big giants operating in the alcohol industry indulge in sparked conversations with people visiting their bars, pubs, and restaurants about reducing excessive consumption, and discouraging drinking and driving. Such inclination and behaviour shown toward society has reflected in a positive outlook among people taking alcohol, thus making craft rum a more enjoyable drink.
