Seven Fathoms Rum is made on island and aged in barrels sunk in the ocean where waves function as distillers, turning them naturally. Tours are daily at 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Buy as much as you like, but know that you can import only two liters (three bottles) of Seven Fathoms per person.
Go for the frozen mudslides — rumor has it, the vodka-Kahlua-Bailey’s potion was invented here. Go for the show of kitesurfers catching air (Bonus: That other cocktail — the mix courtesy of the limbic system —is free, as you imagine what it’s like to try it.) Go because Wreck Bar and Grill on Rum Point Beach is a popular hangout for those who can find it on the east end of the North Sound.
Make reservations for the deck at Calypso Grill in West Bay: It’s an upscale eatery, tucked away from the main drag. Calypso’s offers an ever-changing menu, where the fish is always just caught, and even lionfish can land among the offerings.
