Callwood Relic Rum Distillery

This distillery at Cane Garden Bay in Tortola, BVI has been in operation for 400 years and run by the same Callwood family for the duration.  It’s a relic of its own making.  This rum still is the original creation of metal works and has been brewing rums for the Callwood family for these 400 years.

We were greeted by a nice young man who took us on a short tour of the building.  He’s the next generation of the Callwoods.  Gus had to take home a sample of their spiced rum, but we’ve yet to try it.

Lets talk about the two sides of me. I am a Gemini just so you know. The first side of me is the cooking and entertaining part. This is a major part of my life and I wouldn't be fulfilled without it. Of course, we all have to eat, but the main part of cooking for me is entertaining and sharing fun and flavorful foods with great friends. Dinner parties, happy hours and well, most anything to do with food is where I begin to enjoy. My other side, the artsy side is a craving for art, painting and photography. Maybe this is my Gemini left side of the brain?? Since starting to write a Blog I've picked back up what hubby calls my big ass camera and started carting it around again. He’s always afraid I will ask him to carry it. I keep thinking that when I retire (?#&*!!!) that I will have time to read all the photography books in my library and become a superb photographer. Wishful thinking.

    We were there 25 years ago and still have a bit of their rum left. It only gets handed out in tiny portions because it is so good!
