Sample the Local Spirits
St Vincent and the Grenadines
Sample the Local SpiritsGeorgetown is a rural town on St. Vincent that used to be known as Sugar City because it was the epicenter of sugar production on the island for two centuries. Today the sugar plantations are gone but their legacy of rum remains. St Vincent Distillers are known for their award-winning rums Captain Bligh, Sparrow and the over proofed, not for the faint of heart, Sunset Strong Rum (it’s 84.5 percent alcohol!). The distillery offers public tours for a nominal fee that includes a rum tasting session and there is a small souvenir shop on site.
