The River Antoine Estate is home to the oldest rum distillery in Grenada, where the originaly owners began producing rum in 1785. Today’s owners continue the tradition, serving as a huge part of the Grenadine culture and history and offering a glimpse into the production of one of the country’s most famous exports.
Visitors can learn about and witness the process of production, from the initial picking of the sugarcane plant, the fermentation and distilling processes to sampling and tasting the famous finished product, which is completely organic. The site’s water wheel is actually the oldest in the whole of the Caribbean and one of the only working plantation water wheels in the world.
