Any discussion about rum is a discussion about Barbados, and vice versa. It’s been an integral part of the island nation’s heritage, history, and economy for over 350 years. And in that time, Bajan rum has garnered a worldwide reputation as some of the finest, silkiest, most complex and enjoyable rum to be found anywhere. With over 1,500 rum shops on only 166 square miles of island, finding the perfect spot to enjoy a fabled Rum Punch is as easy as walking out the door. The rum shop is the social and cultural hub of the island, and all are welcome.
This year we bring to you “Rum Trails” where you have the opportunity, at your leisure, to visit each of the rum distilleries. The “trails” will include three rum producers and we will provide a directional map that identifies each distillery. The map will also be posted to the website as well as in “Tasting Notes.” You are free to explore and experience at your leisure.
Enjoy the recipe for Barbados’ famed national cocktail, Rum Punch.
