Belize City was built on rum bottles – or so the legend goes. This tour will take you to one of its most treasured distilleries. First, you’ll be given a tour of the capital by coach. Look out for streets hugged by handsome colonial buildings, bustling shops and parks. Then, it’s on to Traveller’s Liquors Belize – home to world-famous One Barrel Rum. Here, you’ll learn about the history of rum and how it’s made. The tour will take you to the ageing room, where the spirits are aged, blended and stored. You’ll find the rum stacked in wooden barrels – one of which was cracked open for Prince Harry’s 2012 visit. After, you can sample some rum. There are also cocktails on offer at the bar, which was made from remains of an old rum runner ship – Belizeans used these to travel up the Louisiana coast during the days of Prohibition. Later, you can watch a traditional show with locals singing and dancing to drums.
The minimum age for this tour is 18 years old.
