This culinary tour 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. Starting at Pirate’s Pub, next to the Pirates of Nassau Museum, enjoy a swig of the demon water, and delve into a time when inebriated pirates roamed these very streets.
After sampling some rum-infused delicacies at Hillside House, and boozy hand-crafted chocolates at Graycliff Chocolatier, wash it all down with rum samples and a cocktail at John Watling’s Distillery. Hear profiteering tales of old, when these historic properties stored liquor for ocean transport across illicit passages of the Gulf Stream from Nassau’s harbor.
Strap on your buccaneering boots for a jolly good time, and grab your satchel - you’ll want to carry some of this elixir home!

“Very fun, highly recommended”
Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Maricopa, United States on September 11th, 2014 We thoroughly enjoyed this tour. You learn the history of the island and try some fantastic rums and treats. Do make sure that you eat before though because it winds up being more drinking than just a couple samples. the cocktails and desserts included were great too. Our guide was very knowledgeable and fun.

“Yo ho ho and a lot of fun!”
Reviewed by Cary from Colorado Springs, United States on June 27th, 2014 A short but very fun tour that will give you some history of the rum trade in the Bahamas as well as some great samples! The John Waitling Distillery tour and tasting is especially great. And our guide was very friendly, humorous, and fun. Definitely worth doing!

“Great tour, great guide, great experience”
Reviewed by Markus from London, United Kingdom on February 27th, 2014 Booked this tour as part of our cruise. Was really fun and something different, compared to all the normal tours offered by the cruise ship. Our guide was really friendly and explained us a lot about the history of the Bahamas. We had several rums, cocktails, rum chocolate as well as a rum cake. The walk felt short and ended by the famous John Watling's Distillery where we had our last cocktail. I can definitely recommend this tour.
