When your tongue tingles for a taste of local libation, make your way to the River Antoine Rum Distillery. River Antoine has been churning out bottles of rum since 1785, making it the oldest functioning water-powered distillery in the Caribbean. Guided tours will lead you through the rum-making process, from the harvesting of sugar cane to the fermentation to the bottling process. After the tour, you'll be treated to a free sample, but be warned: This isn't your average liquor. "They make a rum so strong that it cannot be taken home on an airplane," writes one TripAdvisor user. "After trying it, I can understand why!" (River Antoine rum is produced in strengths of 138- and 150-proof. Should you want to bring some home, a less potent version is available for purchase.)

You'll find the River Antoine Rum Distillery on the northeast coast of Grenada Island near Lake Antoine, roughly an hour's drive from St. George's. Tours are offered Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. for $5 XCD (about $2 USD).
