Rum-Runner's Historical & Culinary Walking Tour in Downtown Nassau

Rum-Runner's Historical & Culinary Walking Tour in Downtown Nassau

Looking for Blackbeard, the Bahama Queen, or the Real McCoy?

This small group rum-tasting walking tour in the heart of downtown Nassau 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.

Journey over to Pirate’s Pub for a swig o’ their demon water, and delve into a time when inebriated pirates roamed these streets. After sampling some rum-infused delicacies at Hillside House and boozy handcrafted chocolates at Graycliff Chocolatier, wash it all down with rum samples and a cocktail at John Watling’s Distillery.

You will learn about 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 boots and grab your satchel for a jolly good time – you’ll want to carry some of this elixir home!
