In the 18th century, Louisbourg was one of North America's busiest seaports and France's centre of trade and military strength in the New World. Caribbean rum was a major trading good of the times. It was brought ashore in large oak casks through the Frédéric Gate and rolled into storehouses.
This summer explore the drink that sugar made with “Louisbourg Rum Experience – Worth Protecting!” Take part in an historic rum tasting and savour an 18th century Rum Punch. This new program will be offered daily from July 1 to September 7.
