Very cool off the beaten path stop. We had stopped at Cane Garden Bay on our charter trip and walked over to the distillery. I am a huge fan of rum, but not necessarily straight. Tour was very interesting and engaging, and by tour, I mean the tasting room. It looks like it is straight out of the movie, Pirates... More

We stopped here as we were driving by. The fee was minimal and the site was interesting. The young man who toured us was funny and nice. I wouldn't say this is a must do but if you are driving by stop on in.

It was so interesting to see how they have made rum in the same building for over 400 years. Mark was our tour guide and did a great job, thanks Mark. We sampled and purchased a few bottles of aged rum. Tour doesn't take too long but is very interesting.

Fully functional with 4 variations of their onsite-distilled rum available for tasting and purchase. This rustic little location is a great stop as you tour the island. Rum tastings are about $2 and everyone was super friendly there.

Really small, old place that will automatically take you back. There is nothing fancy there which adds to the old charm. When we walked in no one was there except adorable kittens. Soon a young guy came and quickly explained the rums, offered tasters and helped us purchase. He was friendly but not overly pushy at all and answered our... More

We were staying at Myetts and stopped by the distillery one day. It was very facinating inside and there is a nice guy who shows you each of the five rums you can taste for free. We enjoyed learning about the rums and bought the none we liked the most.

If there wasn't a sign I would not have ever known what this place was! The rum is delicious. For $1 you can taste all 4 rums they make there. We ended up buying a bottle and the owner let us buy one of his old license plates that was on the wall, my husband collects those, so that was... More

Nasty area surrounds the distillery. I understand it's old, but there doesn't appear to be much pride in its upkeep.

400 years old and continuously making rum! Very interesting place. Worth the visit. Various kinds of rum. We have sampled what we bought and all were good!

This is a cool place to go and see if you are already in Cane Garden. Its a few minutes walk from the beach.
