Default Rum Governing Agency?

Hello I had a question regarding a Rum Governing Agency similar to that of Tequilla and Cognac?

Thanks!

How about introducing yourself in the introduction section and ask your question?

I'm very suspicious of anyone who throws that question out casually. Personally I believe we have beat that subject to a bloody pulp.....

Thanks!
The Government rules regarding Tequila and Cognac production are based on geography, raw materials, production and ageing. The only rum producing area held to such standards is the French Island of Martinique where they hold the status of AOC Rhum Agricole, the same AOC body which governs Cognac.

There is a new regional organization called the West Indian Rum Producers Association (WIRSPA) which has launched the Authentic Caribbean Rum (ACR) marque. This is specifically aimed at rums sold in the European community.

A search of AOC Martinique and WIRSPA on the forums here will reveal much info and debate!

Have fun.
