Plantations, Gardens & Rum

This refreshing yachting land adventure reveals the origins of Nevis’s sugar and rum industry with featured tastings and cocktails; plus visits the stunning Botanical Gardens and a historic plantation.

Today begins with traveling on board a customized jitney safari jeep as the driver-guide shares the history of Charlestown, including the story behind the Caribbean’s first 5 diamond resort and the historical St Paul’s Church. Charlestown was built in an area where it could be protected by Fort Charles and Fort Black Rocks. With its many historical churches and buildings, Charlestown gives you a glimpse of the past before heading to the next exciting stop, Clifton Estate Rum Distillery.

Enjoy a unique rum tasting experience by sampling a selection of local rums with a rum connoisseur, who shares the history and qualities of each rum. A highlight of this tasting will be preparing your own bottle of Clifton Estate Rum. This artisanal process involves pouring the spiced rum mixture into the classic bottle and applying the seal of your keepsake bottle.

Next you will visit the Botanical Gardens which will entice you to discover the abundant flora around you, before enjoying their signature cocktail ‘Purple Rain’, created from a special local flower ingredient from their garden.

Rejoin the bus toward the final stop at the Hermitage Plantation; with Gingerbread Cottages and a traditional Great House, this family-run hotel boasts the oldest wooden building in the Caribbean. Discover this storybook plantation and try their famous cocktail a ‘Hermitage’s Breeze’ at this magical venue before returning to the yacht.
