Rum-Runner’s Passage ($65 per person)

Rum-Infused Historical and Culinary Tour to Lighten Your Spirits

Looking for Blackbeard, the Bahama Queen, or the Real McCoy? Our rum-tasting walking tour in the heart of downtown Nassau takes you on a journey back to pirate-plundering and rum- running days, when rum and other spirits played a rich and colorful role in Bahamian history. Journey over to Pirate’s Pub for a swig o’ their demon water, and delve into a time when inebriated pirates roamed these very streets. After sampling some savoury Bahamian delicacies at Hillside House and boozy handcrafted chocolates at Graycliff Chocolatier, wash it all down with rum samples, cocktail and sweet treat at John Watling’s Distillery. Become familiar with the profiteering tales of old when these historic properties stored liquor for ocean transport across illicit passages of the Gulf Stream from Nassau’s harbour. Strap on your boots and grab your satchel for a jolly good time – you’ll want to carry some of this elixir home.
