Grenada is an island at the tip of the Caribbean chain of islands. Known as the island of spices, Grenada has been linked to rum for many years.
The country still has three important distilleries: Westerhall Plantation, Clarke's court and River Antoine.
Some of these distilleries still work in a very traditional way, like the Rivers blanc distillery, which still works the same way as in the 18th century. The canes are transported to the distillery in wooden carts and the press is driven by a water mill. The other distilleries have modernised to increase their production.
The main rums from Grenada are Clarke's Court rums (distilled since 1937), Canne Royale rums and Plantation Westerhall rum. Plantation Rum 2004 Grenada is a rum bottled by the Ferrand cognac house from rum barrels imported from Grenada. Read less
