The Chic Escape: Jamaica & Spring Water Rum

/ Food & Drink


We recently hosted Net-a-Porter’s team The Edit  for the 5 days they whilst were on location in Port Antonio for their summer shoot, and were overjoyed to read  our inclusion as the place to stay in their latest online magazine The Chic Escape: JAMAICA.  Do check it out for the latest trends and stunning photographs taken in Port Antonio.

“Book into tranquil Mockingbird Hill, an eco-friendly hotel with uninterrupted ocean vistas. For pure relaxation, have a unique Tao massage in the lush garden spa.”

The team adored our Mojitos, perhaps it’s because we use a boutique Jamaican rum that is ‘northern’ in production and conforms to our own policy of sourcing local to reduce our food and drink miles.  Its unique, smooth taste comes from its ingredients, spring mineral water which has filtered through the volcanic and limestone rocks of the Blue Mountains down into the foothills of a spring near Mcleish Town, and sugar cane sourced  from family estates in Port Maria, the former spanish capital of Jamaica.
