It’s never been known as a rum destination, but for rum drinkers making the trip, Bonaire is home to one rather good rum shop.
And it’s actually a Chinese supermarket.
It’s called the Zhung Kong supermarket, and inside this grocery shop just past the Buddy Dive Resort is a rum oasis.
There’a a superb selection here, from rare Colombian rums to El Dorados and even the ultra-rare, no-longer-produced Bacardi Reserva Limitada.
That’s along with the only place to find high-level rhum blanc agricole on the island, the outstanding Rhum Depaz Cuvee de la Montagne Pelee, perfect for a waterfront ti’ punch in Bonaire. (There’s also the exquisite Depaz Port Cask Finish).
And that’s just the beginning at Zhung Kong, a must-stop for rum aficionados while on the Dutch Caribbean island.
There’s nothing else on the island quite like it.
