Italy has its wine. Germany has its beer. Russia has its vodka. Scotland has its whisky. Mexico has its tequila. In Belize, we have rum.
For Belize, rum symbolizes more than an alcoholic beverage; rum is a cultural phenomenon that visitors from around the world associate with the essence of the tropics. Although it is one of the seven countries of Central American nations, Belize blends more into the Caribbean mentality of its island neighbors. This geographic connection has implanted rum into Belizean life.
