Rum? This strong drink is believed to have originated in Ancient India or China, even though it wasn't called the same. One of the examples of fermented drinks made out of sugarcane juice is brum, which was produced by Malay people thousands of years ago. The more recent quote from a Barbados document describes the drink as 'hot, hellish, and terrible liquor'. Nowadays rum is widely used in drinks, especially the Caribbean drinks like Mai Tais or Pina Coladas.
