The Drink That Sugar Made: Rum Tasting
Let the warm notes and aroma of the rum fill your senses as you sip on the drink that was the favourite of Louisbourg's working class. As you sample an authentic Rum Punch recipe from the 18th century you will learn how sugar influenced trade, shipping and slavery in colonial North America. The taste is authentic, the feeling is refreshing and the location is unique. À la santé!
