Book Description

18 Dec 2001
This title has a dual purpose: to document these special watering holes in photographs and to provide a historical and cultural background to a unique Barbadian institution. It should also encourage Barbadians and visitors alike to experience first hand the exuberant and authentic atmosphere of the Barbadian rum shop. The first section of the book is the story of rum, where it began. the second gives an insight into the brewing of Barbados' prize-winning beer, Banks - strangely enough the most consumed drink in the rum shop! The third section is a brief social history of the rum shop in Barbados. Finally, and most importantly, are featured some of those special rum shops that the reader will find more than worth a visit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Barbadian Rum Shops 26 Aug 2012
By Phillip Goddard - Published on
An excellent book depicting the importance of rum shops to the life and culture of Barbados where cricket and politics are discussed with equal passion. A good book to get the feel of the Barbadisn culture. Good drink, wholesome and tasty food and much humor.
