Most rums are made from what’s left over when companies make sugar: molasses, black treacle, etc.; many commoditized rums contain added sugar. DAKABEND is made directly from freshly-cut high-mountain sugar cane. It’s like the difference between freshly squeezed orange juice and the stuff made from concentrate. The juice is highly aromatic and yields rum with deliciously intense yet soft flavors.
