Like most islands in the Caribbean and surrounding areas, the first settlers in the history of the Bahamas were a group of South American Indians, the Lucayans, who arrived there as early as 300 AD. Unlike the rest of the West Indies, however, the history of the Bahamas never saw an influx of war-like Carib Indians, remaining isolated as a peaceful farming community until the first European visitors in the history of the Bahamas, in the late 15th century. Christopher Columbus was the first European in the history of the Bahamas to step foot on the islands, landing on either San Salvador or Cat Island on his first voyage in 1492.

Smuggling of alcohol during the Prohibition years brought enormous wealth to early 20th century history of the Bahamas, with runners doing brisk business in the whisky trade. The last major indirect American contribution to the history of the Bahamas came in 1961, when US citizens were barred from visiting Cuba and began flocking to the Bahamas instead. Tourism immediately began to play a very important role in the history of the Bahamas, so much so that island was granted limited government just a few later, and then full independence as a nation in 1973.

No one knows with the Bahama drink recipe was invented but it was likely started due to the abundance of rum and thirsty tourists.
