The Caribbean islands are the spiritual home of sugar-cane spirits, and none of them are feeding – and reaping the benefits of – the recent rum boom quite like Barbados. Led by four of the world's iconic rum makers, Barbados is paving the way for rum's worldwide renaissance. Not only is Barbados a hotspot for rums of all varieties and styles, it is the perfect place to visit and soak up a unique culture and history.
