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.

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.
