No problems - I will indeed keep up the flow of info. Would that all the producers were as free with their information...

We're just about to write a rum training programme for WIRSPA (West Indian Rum and Spirits Producers Association) to be delivered in UK, Spain and Italy throughout the next year. It's a little under wraps at the moment, but there are some incredibly exciting things planned and aged caribbean rum is going to be pushed right to the front of consumers minds in those countries 08/09. I'll share whenever we're allowed

That lists several documents by Arroyo. One, "US Patent 2,386,924. Production of heavy rums" is available on the net. And if folks haven't seen this link before you're in for a treat:

http://distillers.tastylime.net/library/Listings2.htm

Check under "Articles" for Arroyo's Heavy Rums doc, and "Great-Great-Grandad's Rum" and "Distillation - How it works" and "How wine barrels work" and "How barrels are made"

"The Alcohol Textbook" includes "Molasses as a feedstock" - which has the description "All you need to know to use molasses as the raw material for alcohol production"

That site is a small goldmine.

Do you have a contact there? Ask them!

I think it is for the betterment of humanity, you cannot copyright that!

I think the intent, is that you are not to profit from the intellectual property of others. Unless it contains proprietary information, I would think they wouldnt care....it increases the exposure of their product to their target market anyway!

Arroyo's Studies on Rum is the compilation of previous work he did on rum distillation, which was mostly only published in Spanish. Studies on Rum is in English. It is interesting reading, especially since he is the father of the light Puerto Rican rum, but at times is definitely geared towards the extremely large distilleries. His patent on Heavy Rum mentioned above is a good read also.

If someone can find the appropriate person at Univ of Puerto Rico who can give us permission, I have all the pages of Studies on Rum scanned. (The book was bound as a paperback originally. My copy needed rebinding so I scanned it first.)
