  • Caribbean rum strategy wants more sip and not mix - FT.com

    In a further boost to palatability, the only way to export rum in quantity was in the oak casks that were the shipping containers of the day, and soon drinkers discovered that rum, above all spirits, benefits from ageing in oak. It soon eclipsed Barbados in production and British West Indies rum dominated the world. In 2011 an inventory of Earl Harewood’s cellars in England discovered bottles of Barbadian rum laid down in 1780.

The Queen’s Guard were installed after the Restoration and Charles II ascent to the throne in 1660.

    After taking over the Philadelphia 76ers back in May of 2013, famously analytics-focused general manager Sam Hinkie's first order of business was to trade away then-23-year-old All-Star point guard Jrue Holiday. Hinkie began taking a sledgehammer to the Sixers' middling roster by shipping out Holiday in exchange for three future draft picks, headlined by 2013 No. 6 pick Nerlens Noel, who might've been the top overall selection if he wasn't rehabilitating after surgery to repair the torn left ACL he suffered at Kentucky.
