Virgin Islands (U.K.)


History

Originally a sugar factory, the building at Josiah's Bay Plantation was converted into a rum distillery in the early 20th century. The machinery was powered by steam and diesel engines, examples of which can be seen on the site today. An art gallery and store are also now housed in the historic building.
