I've toured rum distilleries on other islands but River Antoine is by far the most interesting. It is fascinating to see equipment dating back to 1785 in use today and producing tasty rum!

Amazed at the antiquity of this distillery - imagined pristine stainless steel equipment but could not have been more wrong! It's like a working farm with original working equipment. Still gets the job done though. The rum is like firewater! Rum punch very tasty too.

Loved this tour. The whole pace is stuck in a time warp and this is part of its appeal. Lots of manual processes and not a hint of automation anywhere. They were very proud of being the oldest and having the only original water wheel...More

We took the island tour and the River Rum distillery was on the tour. We guided through the plant starting with a water wheel manufactured in the 1800's and still doing a great job. Walking to where the workers fed the sugar cane into the...More

This is a short tour of a Distillery using tradional methods to make its rum. It uses a water mill to crush the cane and cane byproducts and locally collected wood to supply the heat at various stages. We thought it was a fascinating tour,...More

This was perhaps one of the favorite parts of my trip to Grenada. Getting there by private car was memorable, driving on the other side of the street, and such narrow roads with some big ditches that if not careful, the car could easily drop...More
