River Antoine Rum Distillery, St. Patrick

River Antoine Estate
St. Patrick
Tel: 473 442 7109's insider take:

Since 1785, this rural distillery has produced tiny batches of bracing, overproof rum using the Caribbean's oldest working waterwheel to crush its homegrown sugarcane. The rest of the operation is just as old-school: The cane juice is boiled in enormous iron vats over wood fires; the hooch is hand-pumped into a ten-gallon Rubbermaid water cooler, then dispensed from the spigot into a single bottle at a time. The popular Rivers brand isn't officially exported—at 75 to 80 percent alcohol, it's too combustible to take on airplanes. The distillery also produces a 139-proof rum that is (barely) legal. Be sure to bring a designated driver, because the $2 admission fee includes tastings.

Open Monday through Friday 8 am to 4 pm, Saturdays 10 am to 3 pm.
