As a long-time travel enthusiast, I’ve discovered that one of the best ways to learn about a destination’s history and its people is through food and drink. Food and drink plays a deeply important role in every culture and its customs. Rum Times, a new web video series created in partnership with History.com and Rums of Puerto Rico, aims to leverage that deep connection to explore important events in world history through the eyes of Puerto Rican rum.
The island of Puerto Rico is arguably the Rum Capital of the World. Puerto Rico has been distilling rum for more than 450 years. That’s a lot of historical milestone celebrations!
With the Rum Times series, you’ll have a chance to go behind the scenes and inside celebrations of some of history’s most important achievements, like the quest for electric light, the invention of sports or the development of motion pictures.
Whenever you hear “It’s Rum Time!” you know you’ll be transported to one of Puerto Rico’s exciting local destinations or experience a historical event like never before. Take a look at the first episode, which explores the quest for electric light with Thomas Alva Edison and Nikola Tesla. You’ll be mesmerized and transported back in time to the beautiful island of Puerto Rico.
History in a way you’ve never experienced before: through the eyes of Puerto Rican rum, a local luxury that has been around for more than four centuries!
Personally, I love this innovative approach to telling historical stories. It humanizes historical figures by making them relatable. In a way that makes you want to have a drink with them, and get to know them better. Tesla seems like a rum and cola guy to me, heh!
For me, a rum and diet cola will never be the same again. The next time I take a sip, I’m going to close my eyes and travel to those gorgeous sandy beaches of Puerto Rico.
Be sure to check out It’s Rum Time and share your thoughts on this new series from the Rums of Puerto Rico and History.com. And tell me where your next Puerto Rican rum drink transports you. Cheers!
