Rum Capital of the World? I sure didn't. I also didn't know that Puerto Rico has been distilling the spirit for over 450 years. I wouldn't doubt it if the rum was there during some of history's most celebrated moments. Maybe Thomas Edison and Nikola Tesla toasted after bringing electricity to the homes of millions. Maybe it happened, maybe it didn't. But what if it did? Well, now we'll know! Well... sort of. History.com and Rums of Puerto Rico have teamed up to bring you an original series: RUM TIME! Rum Time imagines behind the scenes celebrations and after parties of historical achievements. It will provide insight about the rums of Puerto Rico while giving interesting facts of the achievement. Let's take the invention of the light bulb for instance. Check out the first episode of Rum Time to get a better understanding of series.
So what do you guys think? Interesting, no? I think it's pretty cool how history.com has stepped up to be a part of this to add more authenticity to the facts given. It's not just a series about rum, but one that gives a little mini history lesson as well. It's perfect for a guy like me. I can't wait to see what else Rum Time will do a show on. Maybe the invention of a sport? Maybe the construction of a monumental building? Maybe the finishing touches of an influential film? All of these would made for a great show and I for one would like to see what those celebrations could have been like!
