Then there are the enticing rum houses and distillers, cooking up potent bottles of iconic liqueur from the freshest sugarcane in the world.

River Antoine Rum Distillery

The longest continuously running rum distillery in the entire of the Caribbean region remains one of the most fascinating attractions on the Spice Isle as a whole.

Drawing both history buffs and booze lovers, it can be found between the fields of Saint Patrick in the north.

Today, the original distillery buildings from the 18th century are age-stained and half-ruined, but the same machinery used to crush and refine the sugarcane all those years ago is still in use, from the creaking water wheel (powered with the waters of the River Antoine) to the timber conveyer belts that transport the sugar crops straight from the field.

Regular tours are available for just a couple of dollars.
