In downtown Nassau, meet your friendly tour guide and head to your first stop, Smuggler's Beer Garden, on George Street. As you enjoy your first sample of rum, try to imagine the days more than 300 years ago when the unruly pirates of the Caribbean roamed these streets, inebriated on their demon water.
Continue walking through downtown Nassau to three more local establishments, where youll fill up on rum cocktails, savory snacks and sweet, boozy treats. Enjoy bites ofhomemade boozy rum cupcakes for dessert!
As you get to know the citys rum and food scene with your guide, discover off-the-beaten-path sites and hear madcap stories about the islands swashbuckling and rum-running history.

Fittingly, your tour ends at John Watlings Distillery, located on the islands Buena Vista Estate. Learn about how rum is made here, from fermentation to aging in white-oak barrels, and hear about the mysteries surrounding 17th-century pirate John Watling, for whom the distillery is named.
