Yachting Land Adventure

Plantations, Gardens & Rum - Oh My!

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 two historic plantations.

From the pier, your adventure in Nevis begins at a local shop that boasts almost 200 varieties of rums. Enjoy a unique rum tasting experience by sampling a selection of local and international rums with a local 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 travel on board your customized jitney bus 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. A visit to the Botanical Gardens will entice you to discover the abundant flora around you, before enjoying the signature cocktail ‘Purple Rain’, which is created from a special local flower ingredient from their garden.

Rejoin the bus toward the next 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!

Last but not least, head to a buzzing beach bar for a taste of Nevis’ most famous drink – the ‘Killer Bee’. Your taste for all the local drinks will now surely be satisfied and the ride back to your ship will just take a few minutes.
