Behind Every Great Rum Is a Powerful Woman

“An essential book, which shows that women are taking an increasingly important place in the world of rum, that they can be very talented producers, but that there is still a lot to do in terms of gender equality.” —Rum Porter

Once known as a sailor’s drink, rum has matured into a refined spirit. In some Caribbean countries, rum is offered as a libation to the gods. In others, it is aged and savored on the rocks. But in the most magical places, rum is distilled by women. Inside Rum Rebels, you’ll find personal anecdotes from master blenders, fabulous recipes for artisan rum cocktails, and the inside scoop on the magic behind Appleton, Zacapa, Cachaça Maria Izabel, Brugal, and more.

The art of cocktails, rum, and women. A pirate staple, rum has been the drink of rebels since the Old World. Now, there’s a new generation of rebels—the business women curating the taste of today’s best rum companies.  Part rum cocktail book, part ode to feminism, Rum Rebels is a story of female empowerment in a traditionally male-dominated industry. Looking at more than a dozen rum distilleries, each chapter of Rum Rebels profiles women in leadership, their rum, and the perfect cocktail pairing.

Learn how rum is made. Alongside women leaders and pioneers, this worldwide master class explores everything from palates to aging, providing first-hand stories from today’s leading rum distilleries. Whether a beginner or a seasoned rum enthusiast, Rum Rebels is the perfect read for anyone curious about the craft of rum distilling, artisan cocktails, or female leaders in history.

Grab a copy to learn how:

  • At Appleton, Joy Spence becomes the first female master blender
  • At Zacapa, Lorena Vasquez adorns her bottles with hand crafted palm leaves by Guatemalan women
  • And more

If you’re looking for rum cocktail books, women leadership books, women entrepreneur books, or women of color gifts—like the Smugglers Cove cocktail book, Women’s Libation cocktail book, And a Bottle of Rum book, or Drinking Like Ladies—you’ll love Rum Rebels.
