After learning about the history, participate in a rum-tasting session. Let yourself be guided by expert staff who will introduce you to the nuances and complexities of their award-winning spirits. Sample a range of rums, from smooth and mellow aged varieties to spiced and flavored expressions that burst with tropical flavors. Take note of the distinct aromas and flavors that each rum possesses– and discover which one is your favorite! Additionally, you’ll also learn some tips on creating some beloved Belizean cocktails. With the opportunity to buy some vintage rum, take a bottle back home and showcase your amateur bartender skills to family and friends.

Set Your Sights on Old Belize 

Next, head on over to the picturesque Kukumba Beach. This beach at Old Belize is the perfect place to spend an afternoon. Enjoy sipping on an array of Travellers Liquors cocktails from the Wata Hole bar.  Relax under a mini-palapa or even venture out and take a refreshing dip into cool waters. While you learned all about the liquors at the museum, here you’ll have the opportunity to taste them in a blend of amazing flavors. At Kukumba Beach, Travellers’ Baron Gin is the highlight of two signature cocktails. 

Paying homage to the beach, the Kukumba Koolah is an enticing fusion of diced cucumbers, soda water, and baron gin with a squeeze of lime. It’s perfect for a day of cooling off in the shade and lounging on the beachside. The crispness of the cucumbers with the smoothness of the gin work as a pair to relieve the summer heat.

The Baron Fizz, on the other hand, mixes the Travellers’ Baron Gin with Blue Curaçao and Sprite. With each liquor complementing the other, this cocktail goes down easy. It boasts minimal ingredients with the ultimate combination of flavors. Travellers Liquors certainly captures an unforgettable side of Belize’s vibrant spirit.
