Barbados, The Rum Island
English: Panarama of downtown Bridgetown, Barbados (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
Forbes: "BRIDGETOWN, Barbados — Rum is believed by many to be the oldest distilled alcoholic beverage. The first commercially distilled variation of this drink is believed to have occurred in this easternmost of the Caribbean islands in 1637, which coincided with the rise of the sugarcane industry, the source of rum and the backbone of its economy well into the 20th Century.
The island also has what I think is the best version of rum punch."
