The Four Seasons Resort Nevis is upping the ante when it comes to its rum-focused holiday experiences with Ready to Rum. The new program from the Caribbean luxury retreat gives guests the opportunity to enjoy a variety of activities concentrated on everyone’s favorite sugarcane spirit.
From a mixology class with top Caribbean bartender Kendie Williams to a rum and Cuban cigar pairing session to a rum blending lesson with local expert Mark Theron and even a rum-infused spa treatment, the new Ready to Rum program from Four Seasons Resort Nevis provides rum lovers with everything they could want from a rum-soaked holiday.
“When you visit the Caribbean, the first thing that comes to mind is having a good, strong rum cocktail to start the vacation off right,” says Loic Ferrie, Director of Food and Beverage. “This rum-soaked package will be the perfect way to end the summer with endless sunshine, palm trees and a taste of rum that will leave you wanting a return trip to this infinite Caribbean paradise.”
Guests who book the Ready to Rum package will also be able to take a bit of this experience home with a bottle of Crowned Monkey Rum. Created in honour of the Resort’s 29th Anniversary, this bespoke rum can only be found at Four Seasons Resort Nevis at the crowned monkey RUM BAR and was produced by Foursquare Rum Distillery in Barbados before being aged 14 years in a single Jim Beam bourbon barrel, with the final year in Nevis, yielding 345 private label bottles. The rum is unfiltered, producing a rich, caramel color and light vanilla notes with hints of aromatic floral scents that waft over the senses as it is poured into the glass.
“This rum is a true taste of the Caribbean and the perfect representation of the legacy that is Four Seasons Resort Nevis,” says Kendie Williams, Master Mixologist. “You don’t need to do much to it; it’s a smooth sipping rum.”
And because every rum tasting experience is enhanced with some smooth tunes to set the mood, the Resort has partnered with BELLOSOUND to curate a Spotify playlist for guests on property and at home to enjoy.
For now, the program is only running throughout the month of August, and rates start at $900 USD per adult. To make a reservation or learn more about the Ready to Rum program, head over to the Four Seasons Resort Nevis’ official website.
