Rum was probably made here soon after the first cane was planted around 1650; contemporary accounts suggest it was made in a "light" style (for its time). By 1764, there were 300 plantations on the island; by 1879, 15 000 acres of cane were being processed in seventy-eight factories. By 1939, there were two.
