In Old Road Town, St. Kitts located near Romney Manor, there's historical structures known as Wingfield Estate. Just over ten years ago during the ongoing archaeological digs, a rum distillery that had been buried for years was discovered. It has since been proven that the distillery is the Caribbean's oldest intact distillery found to date - it was distilling in 1681 (or maybe even earlier).

We came to Wingfield Estate in St. Kitts a few years ago, but enjoyed our quick little encore visit. (The coconut rum and cokes served afterwards by our guide/driver were a nice bonus!)
