Callwood Rum Distillery
(located in Tortola, Cane Garden Bay)
Alive and well is the Callwood run Distillery which still produces rum in much of the way it did in the 18th and 19th century. According to rumors, what is now know as the Callwood rum Distillery which was previously know as Arundel Estate was purchased by Richard Callwood for his son Richard Callwood Jr. Back at that time the Callwood family had a succesful business of producing rum until the cost of importing rum declined. To this day Michael Callwood and his Family a fourth generation in the Callwood Family still operates the Distillery producing rum from sugar cane. Visiting this site is a wonderful experience, where you can view the architecture of an 18th century building and sample great tasting rum.
