Tour Time: Mount Gay Rum Distillery

It has probably become apparent to you readers and drinkers that I love Barbados. It is an island with such a fascinating history and as it happens, they are home to the oldest rum in the world: Mount Gay Rum. This would be a coincidence that I knew I loved Barbados before finding out this…

Cheers to the weekend!

This weekend is the final leg into Barbados’ Crop Over festival. Differently from Trinidad’s Carnival which is a pre-Lenten celebration, Crop Over holds its roots in history where slaves would celebrate the end of working the sugar cane fields as the “crop was over.”
