The Spice of Our Lives
Duration: 4 hours
Tour Code: gnd-001
Enjoy this tour that gives you a nice overview of Grenada's quaint old city of St. George along with an introduction to why the island is referred to as the Spice Isle.
Setting off from the pier, you will first travel through St. George, getting a taste of the town's highlights before heading to the De La Grenade Industries. Located just a few miles outside of town, this family-owned company produces jams and jellies and the prize winning Nutmeg Syrup and De La Grenade Liqueur, which are both made from nutmeg. Before leaving, you will also be treated to a taste of their delicious rum-punch.
From here, it's on to the Laura Herb and Spice Garden. Arriving, you will find yourself engulfed in the aroma of every spice that is grown on the Island. Within the garden you will find a wide variety of herbs and medicinal plants, some of which are exported for use in patented medicines and in Caribbean and International cuisine. Some of these local medicinal plants sport fun names like Shado Bennie and Jump Up and Kiss Me. Amongst others, you will also find aromatic spices such as cocoa, nutmeg, mace, pimento, cinnamon, vanilla, tumeric and cloves.
Your final stop is at Westerhall Estates which produces the Island's leading rums. After a brief tour here, you will have a chance to sample their exotic rum blends before it's time to return to the pier.
