A local favorite, rum making at John Watling’s Distillery dates back almost 175 years. The rum, fermented on-site at this beautiful Buena Vista Estate, is made using local ingredients and traditional rum-making methods. The result of their efforts is some of the best rum in The Bahamas. Take a tour of the beautiful estate while sipping on samples (and maybe buying a bottle or two at the end). All tours and samples are free of charge.
