John Watling's Distillery

John Watling's Distillery Review

The former Buena Vista Estate which featured in the James Bond film Casino Royale has been painstakingly transformed and taken back to its glory days, emerging as the new home of the John Watling's Distillery. Parts of the home date back to 1789 and the actual production of the line of John Watling's artisanal rums, gins, vodkas, and liquors are handmade, hand bottled, and hand labelled just as they would have been in that era. Take a self-guided tour through the grounds and working estate to learn the fascinating history of the home and then walk out back to watch the rum production line from an overhead mezzanine. Sit in the Red Turtle Tavern to enjoy a cocktail and pick up a unique Bahamian souvenir in the on-site retail store.
