Why is the Rum Gone?
There’s no reason to deny it; you’ve come running for the rum. Bahamian rum is a potent tropical elixir, and there are plenty of blends for you to sample while you skip from island to island. A tour of the John Watling’s Distillery in Nassau is as much about the views as it is about the booze, with the facility housed in the beautiful Buena Vista Estate overlooking the harbor. The Graycliff Cigar and Rum Tour will have you rolling in no time, while the historic Graycliff Hotel is itself worth a wander (don’t forget to visit the chocolatier). You can arrange a number of private rum and wine tours from Nassau, though the most authentic experiences involve you getting your hands dirty.
