The commoditization and manufacture of rum has been a major industry in the Caribbean since the inception of the plantation as a means of amplified production to fill consumer needs. Still houses can be analysed to reflect the major economic processes active in the wider Atlantic theater. Betty’s Hope is a perfect example of the British microcosm of production, displaying themes which become archetypal within the socio-economic model of the British Caribbean and wider Atlantic world, during the historic period. These themes, exampled by the impact of that technology in the form of industrial steam manufacture, are dramatically displayed within the documentary survey and archaeology of the still house.

Keywords:   commoditization, consumer, Atlantic world, rum, production, steam manufacture, technology
