That depends on what you call widespread. Many of the bigger companies which export to cold climates do some chill-filtering, but most of the small distillers don't do it. Caramel is one of those dark secrets that no one wants to talk about, but caramel is generally used to make rums consistent color. Consumers don't want to buy rums which vary in color from one batch to the next.
