Fodor's Expert Review River Antoine Rum Distillery

Elsewhere on Grenada Fodor's Choice

At this rustic operation, kept open primarily as a museum, a limited quantity of 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 then 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.)
