Outside of John Watling’s being the only rum distillery in The Bahamas, there are many unique aspects of John Watling’s that are totally blog worthy. Check out our top 5 reasons why you’ve got to visit John Watling’s on your next visit to The Bahamas!

#1: Craftsmanship: Whether you are a rum expert or simply a fan, you’ll most certainly be impressed with the process for crafting John Watling’s rum. Each rum is fermented and distilled from hand cut, freshly pressed sugar cane molasses.

#2: Interesting history: Sip on this awesome piece of history; John Watling’s namesake was the very mysterious pirate John Watling. Very little is known of the infamous pirate but his boldness left quite the impression! Another cool fact- John Watling’s (then called Buena Vista) was featured in the opening scene in Casino Royale...you know...the James Bond movie!? 

We’ve got the proof!
