Fodor's Expert Review Westerhall Estate
Back in the late 1800s, cocoa, sugarcane, coconuts (the oil was used for soap), and limes (used in perfume) were produced on the 951-acre Westerhall Estate, which was then called Bacaye. More recently, Westerhall has focused on blending and bottling rum. The Westerhall Estate tour includes an explanation of the ruins and sugar-processing machinery on the grounds, along with a small museum comprising the eclectic collection of the Grenadian journalist Dr. Alistair Hughes (1919–2005). Particularly interesting items on display in the museum include old rum bottles and labels, Carib artifacts, a number of vintage sewing machines, a World War I Maxim machine gun, and a 1915 Willys Overland automobile.
