Appleton Estate Rum

From Jamaica With Love, Appleton Estate Rum

What do you think of when you think of Jamaica? Is it the white-sand beaches or the savory jerk chicken, maybe it's the smooth reggae beats or misty Blue Mountains. Those are all Jamaican signatures, but you can't think of Jamaica without thinking about rum. And when you think about Jamaican rum, you think about Appleton Estate. I saw the below video shared last week on … [Read More...]

Caribbean Weekly Wrap Up

Friday's are one of my favorite days of the week. Not because the weekend is kicking into gear, but because it gives me the chance to share some amazing stories about the Caribbean with you. All week I read amazing island stories, I keep a list of the ones that stand out, then consolidate the best into the Caribbean Weekly Wrap Up. It's a routine that both keeps me up-to-date on … [Read More...]

Tamarind Margarita Recipe

The Tamarind Margarita: Boat Drink Recipes

After one sip, you'll be livin' like Jose. It's important not to forget our friends in the western Caribbean. All too often focus seems to sit in the eastern Caribbean which I personally love so much, and I need to be mindful of the wonderful countries that make of the eastern boarder. In doing that, I think we all need to drink some tequila! This week's boat drink recipe is … [Read More...]

A Photo Tour of This Year’s Castaway Beach Bash

It's been over a week since this year's Castaway Beach Bash at Bolongo Bay Resort on St. Thomas and I keep thinking about how great of an experience it was. This was the 3rd annual Beach Bash and it seems like the event keeps getting better and better. More people, more islands visited, more fun, and of course more rum. For those that couldn't make it this year here's a look back … [Read More...]

Caribbean Weekly Wrap Up

Ahhhhh, sitting in the RumShop office feels a little odd after five days in the USVI and BVI. The Castaway Beach Bash was an amazing time once again and I'm not sure if I've gotten all the sand out of my clothes yet...not sure I really want to. Want to give a big thank you to all the Castaways that traveled to the islands to share their island love with me and the others. It was … [Read More...]

Coral Bay Marina St. John

Overflow Crowd Says No to St. John Marina Proposal

Although Summer’s End principal Robert O’Connor Jr. claimed to deny St. John the opportunities that would come with building the group’s proposed St. John Marina would be genocide, the vast majority of those who spoke at Monday’s Coastal Zone Management Committee public hearing at the Legislature building thought otherwise. “Coral Bay needs a marina, but only a couple of slips,” … [Read More...]

Reef Rum Punch Recipe

Reef Rum Punch Recipe: Boat Drinks

After one sip, you'll be stuck on a reef. Rum punch is one of those things that is made a million different ways, just like Meat Loaf. A lot of the same ingredients, a few different ones, and always a unique delicious taste. In the Caribbean, when in doubt, go with rum punch. This week's Boat Drink recipe comes to us from our friends at the Frenchman's Reef & Morning Star … [Read More...]

Infinite Passion Drink Recipe

Infinite Passion: Boat Drink Recipe

After one sip, you'll be MoBay bound. I have a confession to make, I've never been to Jamaica. I know it's a sin, the flavorful rock is only one of the most visited islands in the Caribbean. Maybe Ill have to fly down soon and visit The Tryall Club in Montego Bay just to have this week's Boat Drink Recipe. The drink is called the Infinite Passion and comes from the Infinity … [Read More...]

Philipsburg Beach, St. Maarten: Island Lime Videos

Philipsburg, St. Maarten was my home away from home during my sail aboard Island Windjammers tall ship Sagitta. The town is the major port-of-call for cruise ships on the island, so tourists shops and restaurants abound, but there's plenty of places to find a quiet spot to take in the harbor's true beauty as well. Capturing that quiet beauty was the goal of the Island Lime Video. … [Read More...]

Caribbean Weekly Wrap Up

Caribbean Weekly Wrap Up

I've found myself day dreaming about the islands a lot lately. They are always top-of-mind, but the last couple days my salty mind has been awash in blue water and island time. Maybe because March was my last trip to el Carib, maybe because next week is the Castaway Beach Bash, either way withdrawals are setting in. All I know is this Week's Caribbean Wrap Up is full of amazing … [Read More...]

Caribbean Fantasy drink recipe

The Caribbean Fantasy: Boat Drinks Recipe

After one sip, you'll be backstroking it to neighboring Barbuda. I don't want to let the secret out, but National Rum Day is less than two weeks away. That's right, come August 16th the spirit of the Caribbean will celebrate it's little day in the sun. Sure the day isn't an official holiday, but that doesn't mean Castaways like us can't celebrate with a sipper of something … [Read More...]
