Rum and the Caribbean isles go hand-in-hand, a fact that is prevalent at Callwood Historic Distillery, one of two rum distilleries in the British Virgin Islands. Having been owned and operated by the same family for four centuries, this spot still uses historic processes to create pure and potent rum.


Guests are welcome to tour the property and watch as rum is being made using the original boiler and the stored in historic storage casks. The Old Guard House remains intact and opened as an art gallery of local artists and gift shop where you can purchase the rum.
