As November approaches, excitement in Barbados builds. Not only is it the month in which we commemorate Independence, it's also when we celebrate the culinary heritage of the island with the annual Barbados Food and Rum Festival!

Local chefs and mixologists are joined by international celebrity chefs to create exciting culinary delights.

Of course with Barbados being the birthplace of rum, no epicurean festival would be complete without this local spirit. See what goes into making the perfect Barbados Rum Punch and explore where we've been creating some of the world's finest rums for over 350 years!
