With 400 years of history, this, the last distillery still standing on Tortola (once there were 53!), continues to blend and bottle its own rum in an 18th-century stone structure, the very picture of beautiful decay, all tangled in tropical greenery. The ramshackle interior has a tobacco patina, and you can sample the rums, of which 50 gallons are produced every day. Buy a bottle or two; they’re well-priced and make a nice souvenir.
