Help with a question.......

Postby DanielFullard » Mon Apr 02, 2012 11:27 am

Went to a new quiz last night and it was one where the questions are handed out, you hand the sheet back in and get the results the following week.

A few questions caught me out and one I am struggling to find the answer to one google or in any of the reference books.

It was something along the lines of.....

Jamaica is the worlds largest producer of rum, who is the second largest producer?

Any ideas?

This article would suggest Brazil is the world's largest producer of Rum (i.e. as opposed to commercial exporter?) having more distilleries than any other country.

This article hints that Puerto Rico is the largest in the Caribbean (see previous article also, which explains Bacardi moved production from Cuba to Puerto Rico), Barbados is second and Jamaica only third.

You pays your money....

I did not know it, still don't know what answer he will give next week :lol:, but guessed at Cuba. Really didn't have a clue

I'll lay odds on it being Cuba, which I have a vague memory of being given in a TV quiz sometime ago (which shows how dodgy information sticks!)
