Rum Camp

‹ Back

This inaugural four-day program provides an itinerary to entice and inspire both spirit enthusiasts and novices alike, captivating participants with the all-encompassing process of rum-making – from harvesting sugar cane to batching and bottling, and everything in-between.

Hosted at the newly-launch Copalli Rum Distillery adjacent to Copal Tree Lodge, cocktail fanatics are guided through the spirit’s creation from start to finish among the lush farmlands in southern Belize. Crafted with passion and sustainability at its core, Copalli Rum is made with just three ingredients – non-GMO heirloom sugar cane, pure rainforest canopy water, and organic yeast – sourced from 22,000 acres of pristine rainforest.

From farm to flask, guests will immerse themselves in each step of the process while also enjoying additional activities within and beyond the resort.
