Authentic Caribbean Rum gives St Nicholas Abbey glowing review
Amit - UK With time the only obstacle we moved on to St Nicholas Abbey. An old sugar plantation, with a wonderful rich, colourful history. The site was made all the more beautiful by its setting deep within a dense forest and surrounded by sugar fields. This was picture perfect and very reminiscent of a bygone era. Central to all of this was a stunning old house that was owned by the plantation owner in the old days. I watched a fascinating DVD that showed the old ways of life in a sugar plantation. I drank 3 phenomenal rums. St Nicholas Abbey White, 10 years old and the very exclusive 15 year old. I saw one of the most incredible small yet modern stills, which is a hybrid of a copper pot and copper single column. Her name is Annabelle. What topped seeing it was the fact she was on and was distilling. I had never seen a column still in full flow. The column had glass windows at each plate, seeing this really bought the complicated process to life. The building next door to the still housed a very special old steam operated sugar crushing mill. I truly had stepped back in time. I took stock for moment and spoke to one of the employees whose job it was to make fresh sugar cane honey. The collection of old artefacts was remarkable. Old sugar cane juice boiling pots boiling and other things I cannot even begin to describe. It was a remarkable property that left me in a state of admiration. I felt happy to have seen such a great place. Bastian - Germany St. Nicholas Abbey was the place you would want to spend the rest of your life at. Idyllic and adorable, rebuild with so much love to detail it just leaves you breathless.
