According to Alexandra Lynch, creator and visionary of the festival, the reasons for creating a festival of this kind were clear. “The Bahamas has a lot to offer, more than sun, sand and sea. We wanted to create a festival that showcased aspects of our history that we don’t typically celebrate, piracy, rum-running, and how those past events have given birth to our distinct flavours and a culture of appreciation for the art and beauty of rum making. ”
