Callwood Distillery
British Virgin Islands, Tortola

One of the greatest traditions originating in the Virgin Islands is the secret of making British rum. At the beginning of the 18th century, the famous pirate Richard Callwood decided to put an end to the robbery and to do what any pirate knows best - the production of rum. With his savings, he acquired the Arundel plantation, where he built a small distillery. It was he who laid the foundation for the British style of one of the most recognizable drinks. The Callwood factory is the oldest distillery in the Caribbean, which has not stopped working throughout its entire existence. Despite its venerable age, the factory building, built in the characteristic English style, has been preserved almost in its original form. Only the original roof was lost, which had to be changed several times due to hurricanes. Previously, many kilometers of sugar beet plantations were located next to the Collwood Distillery. Today, they are reminded of only a small garden in the backyard.
