Rum of St Kitts

The St Kitts Rum Company produces the famous “Brinley Gold” rums in 6 varieties and their “Shipwreck Spiced Rum” and “Shipwreck Coconut Cream” are also sold around the world.

Hammond (our local moonshine) is locally made in small pot stills and it is, of course, illegal. If you ask around, you maybe lucky to come across someone who knows someone with the right connections.

This brewery, the only one of its kind on the island, produces craft lagers, IPA’s, Ale and Cider, all “on tap”

Patsy’s Beach Bar

By day, a great beach to relax on, by night it transitions into an open air party, lots of music and the most scenic pub crawl in the world!

Situated alongside the Caribbean sea this is the place for both visitors and locals alike. On weekends the music last “till day ketch um moon”.
