VICE travels to Kingston and finds Blackbeard's legacy alive and well; not to mention his drink of choice, rum, which is still an important currency on the island. Visiting a distillery, VICE takes a taste of the booze that boasts a 78 percent alcohol content that sustained the pirates, and learns why it was so vital during Blackbeard's reign. Later, we spend some time on the other side of town with Jamaica's current bootleggers, who carry out Blackbeard's piracy tradition even today.

Rum, Guns & Gallows is a unique marriage of the acclaimed historical accuracy of the Assassin's Creed game franchise and the award-winning immersive journalism of VICE. The series is hosted by VICE's Will Kiersky, with future episodes exploring modern-day rum dealing rogues in the spirit of the infamous Blackbeard in Kingston and the wicked city of Port Royal that the great Calico Jack once called home.

Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed: Black Flag tells the story of Edward Kenway, a fierce pirate and seasoned fighter who soon finds himself embroiled in the ancient war between Assassins and Templars. Set at the dawn of the 18th Century, the game features infamous pirates, including Charles Vane, Blackbeard, and more.

Stay tuned for the final episode from Rum, Guns, & Gallows, airing on Thursday, Oct. 24. And check out more from the series here: http://www.vice.com/ac4blackflag
