Yo Ho Ho and a Bottle of Rum

Ever wonder why rum is associated with those pirates of the Caribbean? Food historian Cynthia Clampitt shares the reason rum arose where it did and when it did, as well as how pirates got involved. Also learn how rum was involved in uniting the 13 Colonies, why it was one of the issues that led to the American Revolution, and how it led to a revolt in its next home after the Caribbean: Australia.
