Start your tour at the magnificent Foursquare Rum Distillery where you will meet your friendly and informative guide. Once a working sugar factory in the 15th century, Foursquare now pays tribute to the many aspects of Barbadian history. You will learn about the various stages of rum making and enjoy samples of their amazing rums at the bar. Then, let your guide introduce you to a quintessential Bajan rum shop. There are about 1,200 of these rum shops scattered across the island. These village shops provide everything—groceries, bread, provisions—and are a local meeting place. Locals meet to drink rum, play dominoes, and to talk with good friends. Immerse yourself in this traditional Barbadian experience.  Stop at the Mount Gay Visitor Center at the end of your tour.
