Colombia

(Sea of the Caribbean)

The rum is a distillate derived from sugar cane or molasses that has accompanied the beautiful evenings of many gourmets for over five centuries. Among the numerous and varied spirits present all over the world, Cuban rum, in particular that of the Colombian earth, is among the lightest, with a sweet taste and therefore often used at the end of the meal to accompany the desserts. Thanks to the soft notes of honey and fruit, this rum is suitable for creating cocktails based on fruit juice and lime. As we have previously stated, the first production of Caribbean rum dates back to the eighteenth and eighteenth centuries, two centuries after those already known in Europe. Shortly thereafter, this drink had an important diffusion in the new continent and on all boats that sailed near the American coasts, especially on military ships, as well as being particularly favored by pirates and sailors. Over the years and centuries, this distillate has undergone numerous experiments based primarily on the production area. Just think of the Spanish rum and the Caribbean versions, like the Jamaican, Cuban and Colombian ones. What differentiates the Caribbean alcohol production from the rest of the world are the territorial characteristics and the always warm and humid climate that allows to obtain a production of sugarcane and molasses, from which the essence of this distillate is extracted, from the sweet notes and a light color, almost straw-like, indicating a good aging exclusively in American oak barrels.

Soil and climate
The climate of Colombia varies from extreme cold conditions, present in the Andean glaciers, to the warmer climates present at sea level, with two dry seasons and two rainy seasons influenced by trade winds and the area of ​​intertropical convergence, in turn influenced by effects of El Niño and La Niña. [56] The temperature is relatively uniform for most of the year and is determined by various factors such as rain, the intensity of solar radiation, winds, altitude, continentality and atmospheric humidity, [57] which gives life to a mosaic of climates and microclimates: the savannah climate, characterized by a dry and a rainy season, typical of the Orinoco region; a super-humid jungle climate, with abundant rainfall and small temperature variations, typical of the Pacific region, the Amazon River, the water catchment areas of Magdalena and Catatumbo; a humid and rainy climate with high temperatures in the Caquetá, in the Vaupés, part of Antioquia and Córdoba and finally an arid climate in the deserts of Tatacoa and Candelaria. In the Caribbean region of Colombia floods, tornadoes, tornadoes and strong winds occur, particularly in the vicinity of the Atlantic department. The regions of La Guajira and the San Andrés, Providencia and Santa Catalina archipelago are exposed to Atlantic cyclones.
History
In pre-Columbian times, Colombia, with the exception of the eastern and Atlantic lowlands, was inhabited by groups of the Chibcha linguistic family, in possession of rather high-level cultures. The northern coast of the C. was discovered first by the expedition of A. Vespucci and A. de Hojeda (1499), then by R. de Bastidas (1502). Hojeda in 1508 and D. de Nicuesa in 1509 tried in vain to colonize the coast; but only in 1536-38 G. Jiménez de Quesada reached the plateau of Cundinamarca, where in 1538 he founded Santa Fe de Bogotá, defeating the Chibcha and founding the province of Nueva Granada. The explorations and foundations continued in colonial times, while the region constituted an audiencia dependent on the viceroyalty of Peru, until the constitution (1739) of the viceroyalty of Nueva Granada, with jurisdiction about the current Colombia, Panama, Venezuela, Ecuador. The struggle against Spanish domination resulted in the proclamation of the independence of this territory (1819) with the name of República de la Gran Colombia, whose constitution was promulgated in 1821 and of which S. Bolívar was elected president. The contrasts that arose between the different regions that were part of Gran Colombia soon led to its splitting up: Bolivar died in 1830, in 1831 the separation between Venezuela, Ecuador and Colombia (including then Panama) was established, which took the name of República de la Nueva Granada.
Typical dishes
The Colombian cuisine offers numerous specialties, in fact, depending on the regions, you can try numerous dishes. Of course, in coastal areas and islands, fish is often roast, often cooked with shellfish (excellent lobsters and squids) and seafood, while in the inland areas the diet is mainly based on pork and meat dishes. bovine, cooked often roasted or stewed with a side of beans, rice and potatoes. Among the main dishes we mention the lechona. Among the drinks, in addition to the non-alcoholic ones, very widespread, such as coca-cola and fanta, the use of national beer, generally light, of the ron and the aguardiente, is widespread. But the real pride of Colombia is represented by coffee, which was imported into these lands by Europeans in the 18th century. has found here a favorable environment for reproducing and, thanks also to processing techniques that have evolved over time, is considered today one of the best in the world.
