Welcome to Callwood Distillery

Callwood Distillery

A must-see attraction, the Callwood Distillery in Cane Garden Bay manufactures delicious rum the old-fashioned way. The distillery - belonging to the Callwood family since the mid-1800s - doesn't appear to have changed much since then: traditional methods are still used, as well as antique equipment. Current owner Michael Callwood is always proud to inform visitors that Arundel Cane Rum, the distillery's brand, is made from pure sugar cane juice, with no preservatives added - what he calls a 'pre-emptive strike against hangovers' - and visitors can actually view the ancient oak barrels in which the rum is aged. One part distillery tour, one part history tour (the stills really do appear as though they belong to another age), the Callwood Distillery is one of the British Virgin Isles' most celebrated tourist attractions - and a great place to pick up a few souvenirs from your time in the Caribbean!
