    Hey Ian,

    Glad to see the site back up. Any chance of a new book coming out. Loved the last one.

    It will take a while to put all the links etc back up… if you can think of any suggestions that I can run past my agent, I’d be happy to indulge. Rum was fun to research and write!

    Great site, Ian. I guess I had forgotten that we both are children of colonialist nations–hence the rum connection. Oh, well–it dilutes the guilt! Look forward to reading the book.

    Hi Ian,

    I think the website is pretty cool. To borrow a bad sci-fi pun from Bradbury, “you have my Vogt of thanks” for such an interesting place to visit. (Sorry I couldn’t help myself as I just had to get an obscure reference to two of my favourite Golden Age authors in there)

    Anyway, I added you to my Blogroll, which should have been done long ago.

    Capn Jimbo's Rum Project Says:

    As you may know the current massive subsidies to Puerto Rico and especially the USVI threaten the survival of Caribbean rum as we know it, and smaller distillers in the United States as well. Phil Prichard, among many others, has spoken out vigorously against these stupendous subsidies (totaling over $4 Billion). All smaller distillers, here and in the Caribbean may not survive.

    Please know that a number of rum websites are organizing to fight back. An formal petition has been established, as well a Press Kit. If you would like to receive a press kit, please respond by email, and we will email it to you. We assume you care about this issue, and are pleased to supply you with all relevent data.

    Hi Ian

    We met at a restaurant in Bovina on Saturday and you were asked if you knew the name of the rum produced for the Shetland Islands.
    Here is the link

    may your luff never be slack

    Hi ‘Pundit…I surf by every few months to see if you’re up and about again. Hope all is well. Will you continue adding content here in the near future? Certainly hope so.

    Rumpundit Says:

    Thanks for enquiring. I have had a horrendous time that not even rum could cure. But coming back and hope to revive activity on the site soon.
