Getting around the islands can be half the adventure of discovering new rum.

Default Rum bars/tasting in the BVI

I tried to post this before so I hope it is not a duplicate.....

There is a restaurant in the USVI (Sweet Plantains) that also has a rum bar that does tastings of flights of rums. I am doing a bareboat charter in the British Virgin Islands this June and was curious if there was a similar place in the BVI. Other than touring the Arundel Distillery in Cane Garden Bay, are there other rum related activities, good places to rum shope, etc. in the BVI?

Thanks.

Welcome to the forums. As for rum shopping in the BVIs don't miss the grocery stores in Road Town. They have a good selection of things you won't find anywhere nearby and the prices are competitive for that area.

Pusser's and Foxy's are a must visit for any rum lover. I am planning another family trip to the BVI next summer. I will follow this thread closely to see if anyone else comes up with more info. Enjoy your trip and please keep us posted of any highlights.
PS While I was in Trinidad earlier in the year I saw Pusser's being bottled!! I am going to have to splash out on one of thier huge decanter bottles while I am there.
