It’s almost time for the 

8th edition of the Barbados Food and Rum Festival 



Barbados is often referred to as “Culinary Capital” of the Caribbean, and is a year-round epicurean escape for foodies. 


The island also has the distinction of being the birthplace of rum. Mount Gay distillery was founded in 1703, and is believed to produce the oldest rum founds anywhere in the world. So it’s no wonder that the Barbados Food & Rum festival continues to be one of the most popular festivals in the region.
