Rumming it up in Tortola

What’s not to like about an old rum distillery just steps from the beach on a beautiful island in the BVIs?  Here’s a look at Callwood Distillery in Cane Garden Bay.

A Look at Callwood Distillery

Our friends at Travelers in Paradise really have got the life.  They sail the Caribbean, stop off at beautiful beaches, drink and document the whole thing for all of us to enjoy.  Their videos are filled with great info about sailing, island fun and good livin’.  Our favorite is the one they recorded at Callwood Distillery in Cane Garden Bay.

If you’ve ever been to Tortola, it’s likely that you stopped in at Callwood.  This is an old distillery that continues to make rum the old fashioned way.  They grow their own cane, press it manually to extract the juice, ferment it on site in old wooden barrels, distill it in an antique pot still and, of course, drink it at their very own rum shack.  You’ve gotta see this.  Enjoy!
