|History of Kill Devil|
| While Barbadian records from 1650 are the first known to have mentioned “Kill-Devil” very little was known about the spirit of West Indian origin before the transatlantic slave trade. New England colonizers traded African slaves to the West Indies for molasses. Slaves used the molasses to make “Kill-Devil” for colonizers to trade to Africa in exchange for more slaves. By 1667, fermented molasses, which was enjoyed by slaves and poor white settlers, had become the major liquor distilled during the early history of the United States. |
Kill Devil, also known as rum, is typically enjoyed straight in rum-producing countries and consumed in mixed drinks elsewhere. For such cocktails as the daiquiri, light rums are preferred over the dark rums used in tall drinks like the rum Collins. Rum is frequently used to flavor tobacco, dessert sauces, and other dishes, and can be found in light-bodied versions typified by Cuba and Puerto Rico as well as heavier fuller flavors of Jamaica.
