The Distiller’s Guide to Rum by Eric Watson, Ian Smiley, and Michael Delevante.
This book is inspired by the recent popularity of rum among cocktail circles, and by the advent of so many new rum craft distilleries in North America. Included is: the story of rum and how it is made, the ingredients, equipment, and processes used to make rum; the lubricious effects of barrel aging, and the various ways that it is done. And, a step-by-step description on how to make a 155-gallon batch of rum mash and how to distill and age it – including a recipe! Hardcover. 160 pages.
