Puerto Rican rum is a type of rum made on the Island of Puerto Rico. Rums made in this style are column distilled and quite light, scarcely differentiating white Puerto Rican rums from vodka. Puerto Rico is a huge producer of rum, though sugar cane harvesting has all but disappeared from the island.
There are a handful of large distillers in Puerto Rico, the best known being Bacardi. Other producers include Captain Morgan, Ron Rico, and Don Q.
