Drinks in Grenada

Grenada is known for its rum distilleries. The three main ones are Clarke’s Court, Westerhall Estate and River Antoine. All three offer educational tours showing how sugar is made for rum. They are all located in different parts of the island.

  • Westerhall Estate produces a family of award-winning rums, including a 3, 8 and 10 year old rum. Their special rum (with the wax casing), Westerhall Plantation and Westerhall Vintage, is probably the best rum on the island. Along with their Jack Iron and White Jack surproof rums. Their new 12 Degrees Premium Rum is delicious!
  • Clarke’s Court produces special light and dark rums that are also delicious.
  • Be warned about the Antoine River. Because of its 75% alcohol content, it is illegal to take it home in many countries, at least on flights. There is a 69% version for “export” that may be legal.
  • In all distilleries you can at least buy small bottles, and in most grocery and rum shops you will find normal sizes.

In many bars, look out for drinks made with “under the counter” ingredients, such as the very oversalted “local” rums often used in “pain killers”. They can overwhelm even the most experienced drinker. The fruit juices used are made from locally grown fruits such as mango, papaya, star fruit (five finger fruit). Some “water points” (often offering food) are…
