The Caribbean and Spain have a long history back in the times of Colonisation, the Spanish introduced the Caribbean to their language, religion, art, and culture, all of which are still present there. Many Caribbean nations still speak Spanish, and the islands continue to practise religious and cultural traditions that date back to the time of the Spanish. The architecture on many Caribbean islands is still influenced by Spain, and many of them are examples of the distinctly Spanish colonial style. The Caribbean region enjoys drinking rum, which is produced in a number of styles, including white, golden, dark, spiced, and overproof. Each type of rum has a particular flavour and is frequently produced with additional spices or additives to achieve this.
