Calypso Rum bottle, about 1970

This bottle was produced for rum distilled at the Hopefield Sugar Plantation in Barbados. The Hopefield Plantation is one of the oldest surviving sugar plantations on the island still producing rum for export. The bottle features a man seated on a rum hogshead, playing the sort of drum that was banned during the days of slavery.
