The Rum Story is on Lowther Street Whitehaven and is set in the original shop of the Jefferson family . The Rum Story can provide fun in all weathers. When you visit The Rum Story you will travel through a Tropical rain forest, an African Village, a slave ship, Cumbrian Cottages, and much more! The Rum Story is the worlds first exhibition telling the story of Rum! They accept coach party's and have a gift shop and a cafe overlooking the famous Rum Story Kinetic clock!
