We’re Drinking Rum in the Caribbean!

Today, we celebrate the liquor of all liquors and their beautiful, tropical birthplace, the Caribbean. Served on the rocks or neat while sitting on the rocks, rum in the Caribbean burns a little more and tastes a little better than anywhere else in the world.

Rumor has it that the world’s oldest rum was actually distilled in Barbados and, even though they are separate brands of rum, it is also alleged that the oldest distillery also has roots in Barbados. Either way, the magic started in the Caribbean and the world could not be happier with its existence.

Most great rums are made from the aromatic and flavorful molasses, which is the byproduct of sugarcane juice. It all adds up, the Caribbean, like rum, is so captivating because with the sweet smell of sugarcane trailing the air, how could we get enough of the tropics and its innate rum culture?

In the spirit of National Rum Day, we honor some of the best rum distillers in the region like Appleton Estate in Jamaica, Storming Norman Rum in St. Lucia and Clarke’s Court Rum in Grenada, Mount Gay Distilleries in Barbados and John Watling Distillery in Bahamas.

Many have found that rum is best enjoyed when paired with the scenic outdoors. We can count on the Caribbean to provide us with a look book of gorgeous spaces, none like the other, giving very much - distinctive.

In Jamaica, the Appleton Estate Rum experience is complimented by the beautiful cascades of the popular fresh waterfall, YS Falls.

YS Falls naturally lends itself to the outdoors with plenty of freshwater pools, scenic gardens and seven waterfalls to explore.

Meanwhile over in St. Lucia, pair your drink with the stunning views treasured by Marigot Bay. The bay has been described as the most beautiful bay in the Caribbean, surrounded by lush, beautiful hills and covered in whispy, powdery, white sands; access to the warm waters of the Caribbean Sea.

Grenada on the same hand is a gorgeous island, with the warmth of the people mirroring the scenic landscape from end to end. The island is rich not only in beauty but is a story waiting to be told. Sip on a glass of Clarke’s Court finest, listening to the history unfold across the beautiful landscape of scenic Grenada.

Mount Gay Rum is actually where rum started not only in the Caribbean but also for the world. Barbados is home to the world’s oldest rum and is no doubt a scenic machine. From beautiful white sand beaches to rustic railways at St. Nicholas Abbey, Barbados is a look book of sights and scenes.

The Bahamas is one of the tropics most gorgeous places. Caribbean travelers often choose to visit this regional hotspot because of its crystal clear waters matched only by the powdery white sands of the adjacent beaches. The island’s best John Watling Rum in hand and sun hot, there is no way you won’t have a good time.

The tales of rum, views and wonder are endless in the Caribbean. Perhaps this summer, you too can form a part of the story. Happy National Rum Day to you all!
