Barbados Rum Shops are woven into Barbadian history and culture, going back 300 years or more. Rum was perfected in Barbados; the process of cold pressing and distilling rum from cane juice was a Barbadian innovation. There are thousands of rum shops all over the island, several in every village. Soon after the island was settled in 1627, the rum trade flourished and it’s said there was one rum shop for every 20 inhabitants of the island. www.bajanrumShop.com Instagram:@Bars_inc
"Many know the sport of Barbados is cricket, but do you know what the game played most in Barbados is? One can be very sure that you can find and any time during the day or night a game of DOMINOES being played. Whether in a rum shop, lunchroom, at a picnic or a local lime under the tree you will find a gathering of people sometimes very quiet in concentration or sometimes very animated and theatrical as they slam dominoes onto a board."
