Rum Journal: How to Bottle Your Own Rum in Nevis


One of the most best (and most creative) rum shops in the Caribbean has just launched a terrific new experience: the chance to bottle your own rum.

The L&L Rumshop on the island of Nevis, which is also home to the Nevis-made Clifton Estate Rum, is now giving guests the opportunity to bottle their own personalized editions of the rum.

Guests can wait their turn to bottle their own rum and then get their name and the date engraved on the bottle.

Guests fill their bottle, they cork it and then they seal it with wax.

If Theron, the owner of Clifton Estate, is in the shop, he’ll sign the bottle as well. (Clifton Estate, a spiced rum from Nevis, took home the Double Gold in the Spiced Rum category this year’s Caribbean Rum Awards in Saint Lucia.

“It’s just a little something to create a special experience for anyone coming to the shop,” L&L proprietor and regional rum expert Mark Theron told Rum Journal. “A trip to L&L Rumshop should always be a fun and memorable experience.”

The new experience has already proven to be a big hit in Nevis, both for locals, travelers and cruise passengers a like.

It’s not hard to see why.
