We really enjoyed the tour of the distillery as it was nice to see it in operation. The gardens are also very beautiful, with great photo opportunities all over. A word of warning, you will taste 8 different rums, either eat there or eat before you go.

Very informative guides explaining the rhum production in great detail. The tour ends in a rhum tasting which is spectacular, the flavoured rhums in particular are worth the trip.

A working rum distillery where you can see all the stages of making rum, from the delivery of the cane to tasting the product. You can also purchase many types of rum and the prices are reasonable too.

Set in stunning scenery on the edge of Black River Gorges N.P. makes the visit worth it. We tasted 8 types of rum and liqueur and had an insightful tour from Bryna of how the rum was made. The food in the restaurant was also very good.

45 minute stop, reasonable tour price, interesting to learn how rum is produced, no part of the sugar cane is wasted, plus strong tasting at the end, so plan lunch first or make sure you are not driving, finally cheaper to buy the rum for the rhumerie directly than anywhere else.

The distillery ,one of 2 on the island(the other is up north) is an extremely well run & professional facility. The tour guide made it very interesting. The fact that the sugar cane is completely used in the process with the pulp being used to generate electricity. The tasting of their different rums were great -we tasted 7 different rums... More
