A unique opportunity to experience what the Caribbean is known best for, rum and savory food in our Backyard rum shop.
You will be met on the pier and escorted to your awaiting air-conditioned transportation. Board your taxi and be driven 10 minutes to a lovely Caribbean rum shack in St John's on Sir Vivian Richards Street, the very street where Antigua's favorite son was born.
You will be met by one of Antigua's most respected husband and wife team who own and run the rum shack. They will welcome you with a real Antiguan hospitality. Then the fun and education begins.
A journey and history of how Antiguan and Caribbean rums are made will be explained with stories, anecdotes, and an opportunity to taste and provide your feedback on up to 3 different Antiguan rums. These will be complemented with water to cleanse your pallet.
The rums will be complimented with a choice of numerous delicious Antiguan and Caribbean specialties; crab backs, conch fritters, saltfish fritters, jerk chicken, fish fingers, chicken fingers and crab cakes made from fresh local ingredients. The local recipes will be shared with those who wish to know chef's secrets!
There is a saying, 'When in Rome do as the Romans do'. This is a unique and exclusive opportunity to do what the Antiguans do in Antigua, drink and savor the taste of rum whilst enjoying delicious freshly prepared hot savory finger foods!
Of course there will be an opportunity to purchase your favorite bottle of rum to take home with you. Your air-conditioned transportation will then take you back to the pier and your awaiting ship.
