  • Taste the sweetest pineapple in the world, the Antigua Black Pineapple. Brought to Antigua from South America by the Arawak people, the pineapple was first cultivated in the 17th century on the island’s southern coast. Crispy and sugary sweet without being acidic, black pineapples are delectable to the core. Despite their name, the fruit is never black. The skin remains green even when ripe, so picking the perfect one relies heavily on smell and touch. Local farmers take advantage of Antigua’s rich soil, moderate rain, and nearly endless sunshine to raise up these paragons of pineapple perfection. The signature fruit of Antigua, it even stands atop the Antiguan coat of arms.

  • Enjoy a Caribbean classic, conch. Fished from the island’s own warm waters, the conch in Antigua is sweet with a texture somewhere between clams and calamari. Given its local abundance, conch can be found in different chowders, curries, ceviche, or battered and fried into fritters. On a warm Antigua day, it’s hard to beat the light and refreshing taste of conch ceviche served alongside a delicious daiquiri.

  • Indulge in the rich flavor of Caribbean rum while staying at The Great House Antigua. The island’s most popular dark rum, Cavalier, is produced by The Antigua Rum Distillery, the same company that produces the molasses-based English Harbour rum which was named by Forbes Magazine as one of the 10 most remarkable rums in the world. The dedicated team at The Great House Antigua can arrange rum tastings upon request.
