For those who love the history of Rhum / Rum seen through a Luca Gargano distributor from Velier, who tells his life.
Reading it makes you want to explore, to travel, to taste and again to .. travel.
An extraordinary story through time and space, on the trail of the undisputed Caribbean lord: rum.
It is the unique adventure of the discoveries and selections of Luca Gargano, the Genoese who marked decisive stages in the history of this distillate, bringing the most demanding palates in Europe and the world to know not only the excellent rum, but the the very soul of a culture, the beating heart of a universe made of taste and respect for nature, music and work in the fields, unique distilleries and exceptional people, conviviality and pleasure of living.
From the seventies to the near future; from Cuba to the most unreachable corners of the Caribbean islands, passing through meetings with the most diverse people, including Fidel Castro, Gérard Depardieu or Niki Lauda, the parable of a passion that led Luca Gargano to conquer one success after another, a rum after another, combining past and future in a timeless dance.
A book on rum that is also an autobiography, but also a passionate work of love for life and its truest and most sincere pleasures, always appreciated and enjoyed thanks to ancient and genuine values that are proper to our most noble and of the most good and true nature.
