Puerto Rico has produced Rum since early ages and is part of its culture. But the rum making process has been an irregular one since the process has been passed through generations and the persons who make it don’t really know what’s happening in terms of chemistry. Here, we constructed a reflux column system where the process of distillation is more robust, controlled, and efficient. In the end, the new automated systems’ production doubled in the same period of time as in the traditional system. In addition, we managed to obtain a consistent high-quality product. Key Terms Automation, Distillation, Reflux Column, Rum.
