Nestled in the highlands of St Peter in Barbados is St. Nicholas Abbey. Built in 1658 and remaining virtually unchanged for the last 350 years, it is one of only three Jacobean mansions remaining in the Western Hemisphere. This old plantation house sits in over 400 acres of sugar cane fields and has been fully restored to its former glory by local architect and current owner, Larry Warren.
Currently, the un-aged water-white rum from St. Nicholas Abbey is the only commercial rum distilled at the plantation itself. However, there are plans that eventually all rum will be distilled in St. Nicholas Abbeys' own still, Annabelle, using the estate's own home grown sugar cane.
