River Antoine Rum Distillery

  • Winery/Brewery/Distillery

Updated 03/04/2014

Fodor's Review

At this rustic operation, kept open primarily as a museum, a limited quantity of Rivers rum is produced by the same methods used since the distillery opened in 1785. River Antoine (pronounced An-twyne) is the oldest functioning water-propelled distillery in the Caribbean. The process begins with the crushing of sugarcane from adjacent fields; the discarded canes are used as fuel to fire the boilers. The end result is a potent overproof rum, sold only in Grenada,

that will knock your socks off. (A less strong version is also available.)
