Ep 7 - We Need To Talk About Rum
Play • 1 hr 9 min

Rum is delicious and wonderful, cocktails like the daiquiri and the mojito are fun...but rum's legacy of colonialism, racism, poverty, and exploitation is also problematic. Jason and Amber take a deep dive into rum’s contradictions. Talking tropical cocktails with top bartender Israel Melendez Ayala, the rum business with Clyde Davis of Equiano Rum, and Haiti with Rhum Barbancourt CEO Delphine Gardere.

Music from the EP “Momentos” by Ages
