This was fun

We tried to visit a couple of times and it wasn't always open. I am glad we tried one last time as it was a Sunday and the last bit of rum was draining into a 5 gallon bucket as... read more

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.

This is a very good place to stop and to get informed about a peace of the history of this beautiful Island. The way that the locals have been making rum for the past 400 years is still being done the same way as all these years ago.....thats just mind blowing. It might not look like much, but to think...

It's a neat place, very unique. It's the oldest, still working, rum distillery in the Caribbean. It's a very small place. it wont take you long to look around the building and buy some rum. If you are in Tortola you should at least stop by here once.

You have to stop by for a tour and tasting! Very cool. This is a very short tour so worth the stop. This is not a "Napa wine country" moment. But take the time to look around. Buy some samples. I liked the Arundel Cane Rum. It has a couple other names that I will leave for you to find... More

So if you enjoy rum, this is a great place to visit. However, the pictures shared are the entire experience. Not a tour as much as a cool rum tasting in a dank old building. Having said that, the building itself is incredible and the workers are friendly and full of information. Go try the rum then buy some bottles... More

It's old and run down as you would expect with it's age, but the employees are very friendly and very generous with their tastings. Some of the best rum I've ever tried. I think the tour and tasting was a grand total of $1.

Stopped here briefly on an island tour and bought some miniatures of their products ($2) to take back to the ship. It is a very small operation; the only place in the BVI that still produces rum and the people are friendly. But before you take photos, they want you to buy something. The "Arundel" is a 10 year old,... More
