Of Ian’s book, ‘Rum: a Social and Sociable History of the Real Spirit of 1776’, Kirkus Reviews writes “rambunctious, rollicking history, sodden with tasty lore”. The Washington Post furthers, “If only high school textbooks were written in the style of (this book), lessons of the 10 th grade would be more fun and memorable. One curious legend Williams relates concerns the body of Admiral Horatio Nelson, Britain’s greatest naval hero, which reportedly was shipped back home preserved in a cask of rum. Williams slyly notes that, according to one version of the legend, the cask arrived a few liters shy”.
