Explore the artistic and artisanal sides of Barbados with a guided visit to a wood sculptor's studio and an island rum distillery. Watch skilled woodworkers transforming roots into abstract art, and then sip the island's celebrated golden libation at Mount Gay's 300-year-old tasting room.

From Bridgetown, ride up a lush and forested hillside to the studio at Medford Craft World, where you can meet self-taught artist Reggie Medford and see his team of artisans turning roots from the Barbados mahogany tree into smooth, twisting, elegant works of abstract art. Get a demonstration and tour the workshop, then check out other wares crafted by islanders, including woven baskets and pottery.

After the tour, explore Barbados' other famed masterpiece with a tasting at the 300-year-old Mount Gay Rum distillery. Delve into island culture as you learn about the tradition of Barbadian rum making, from refining and aging to blending and bottling. Learn about the local ingredients and centuries' worth of knowledge that infuse these rums with their particularly refined flavors, then sample some of the spirits and enjoy a refreshing tropical cocktail on a veranda overlooking the sea.
