The memoir on rum written by the Genoese Luca Gargano, world-renowned expert and true pioneer who changed the history of this great distillate. An extraordinary tale through time and space, in the footsteps of the undisputed lord of the Caribbean: rum.
It is the unique adventure of the discoveries and selections of Luca Gargano, the Genoese who marked decisive stages in the history of this distillate, bringing the most demanding palates in Europe and the world to know not only the rum of excellence, but the very soul of a culture, the beating heart of a universe made of taste and respect for nature, of music and work in the fields, of unique distilleries and exceptional people, of conviviality and pleasure of living. From the seventies to the near future; from Cuba to the most unreachable corners of the Caribbean islands, passing through the encounters with the most diverse people, including Fidel Castro, Gérard Depardieu or Niki Lauda, the parable of a passion that led Luca Gargano to conquer one success after another, a rum after another, combining past and future in a timeless dance.
