Given that Grenada is known as the Spice Island, and even has a nutmeg prominently displayed on its flag, we thought it made sense to take a tour emphasizing spices.
We were greeted by a fun steel band upon arrival that started us out on an upbeat note.
We visited a major farm where spices and herbs are grown and learned what they cure as well as how they taste.
Then we sampled many jams, jellies, spreads and drinks.
Next up was a rum factory. It’s history and rum making going back 250 years was the most interesting. The obligatory tasting of their seven varieties followed.
We visited a small “relics” museum. I must be really getting old seeing a telephone and a typewriter in a museum of relics.
Alas, there is just so much fun I can take on one tour.
