Chinese Marines had noticed this long time ago, but because the citrus was costly, the remedies that do not give the useful results such as cabbage, beer. The Royal Navy was at 1655 after Jamaica’s occupation of ROMU and took positive results as the side effects are. Half-liter of daily was actually a protection of scoring. But on the other hand, they lost their balance of alcohol sailors and the falls brought heavy accidents. In 1740, the commander of the Navy has revealed the idea of ​​dilution of the admiral verna with water. This measure has worked. Dilution of the drink with water brought a reduction in business crashes. The admiral was wearing a coat called a grogram (rough fabric made of silk and goat hair) made of a felt-like substance. With the name received here, the name of the new standard drink of warships was also “Old Grog”. At the end of the century, you also need to remind the Grog (a mix of sugary water and roms) a little bit of citrus juice.

Furthermore, in North America, there was a new market to replace the water for the ROM. Since british colonies sewage or cleaning tools are not very unknown, it was not surprising that the clean drink is not too much. He was smeared in the water water, and it was almost uninterrupted. So it has been to the new product. Although Scottish and Irish immigrants had no opportunities, they had visited whiskey. But the colonial whiskey was not very good as taste. At the end of the 18th century, the whiskey obtained from corn in Kentucky was slightly higher. Another alcoholic beverage alternative was an apple wine and was a great demand. Nevertheless, the rom was the most popular with great supply and an average of 24 liters per year (including seniors and children) was a drink. The rate of alcohol in those ages was higher than the current today. The ROM has become one of the most important economy branches in the colonies. The commercial capital in the new Britain has also partnered. Ships loaded with ROM kegs are being sent to West African ports and here was being replaced by people. The slaves are removed in the private markets in the Caribbean and part of the income was spent on the purchase of Melasse (required waste for ROM). The trash was loaded on the ships and the rom was being manufactured in New England.

This very profitable three-sided trade has received an important blow with British Molas-se law in 1733. However, unless the product is British, it was decided to take a higher tax from sugar and Molasse. Some historians are in view that these laws increase their resistance to metropolitas in colonies and the main reason for the rebellion in 1755. In this respect, of course, they point to significant economic interests to seriously. It was also not reason that the expensive of the alcohol is at the beginning of the superpower.

Industrial capitalism had certain preconditions.
