My wife and I spent our honeymoon on St. Croix in attempt to get away from everything for a week. Our hotel concierge told us that we must visit the Cruzan Rum Distillery and go on a tour. We heeded her advice and took a short trip to the distillery one morning. In short, the distillery and tour were well... More

We took this tour to learn about how Cruzan Rum was made. Little did we know we would get a History lesson as well. Nice touch! Magda who was our tour guide was very patient and answered all our questions. We were taken through the Distillery and afterwards offered to sample the Rum. It's delicious! Their are many different Rum... More

Our tour guide, Shelly, was fantastic! She knew so much about the factory and it's history. Cruzan Rum is a staple of St. Croix and you can see why when you visit. We especially enjoyed tasting the rum and having 2 mixed drinks after learning all about it. We highly recommend visiting!

The Cruzan Rum Distillery in St. Croix is a must see! If you go early their aren't too many people in a group. Each tour guide is an employee, ours had only been working there for 10 months, but she had so much knowledge about the place and it's history that it seemed as though she was there for 10... More

The cruzan was recommended to us, and Tripadvisor showed us that it was much better than Captain Morgans Distellery. You get to go around the distillery, you are told about the process, and normally I'm sure the guide is friendly, happy to answer questions, and interested in the rum making process. Ours wasn't! She rolled her eyes at every question... More

Nice lounge area with great breeze to enjoy your rum! Only $4 for tasting or $5 to tour the distillery and tasting. Fun experience. Can take a 6 pack of... More

We have been to the Bacardi tour in San Juan, the Jameson tour in Dublin, and the Guinness tour in Dublin also. The Bacardi and Jameson tours were like visiting a museum. The Cruzan tour was the best we have been on. Not only do you get to see the distillery in operation up close and personal but the hospitality... More

We stopped here to kill some time before heading home via the airport. Our tour guide was friendly and informative, answered all of our questions, and mixed up some amazing drinks. We were able to sample 8 different rums in addition to our mixed drinks. Our guide told us the differences of all the rums during tasting- very informative. We... More

Was absolutely a must see! Architecture is just exquisite and the history behind it is beyond belief. Staff are amazing and really know their stuff! Their drinks are the best drinks my family and friend and I have EVER had. One of the best parts of the vacation was this distillery!

Had some extra time on our last afternoon in St.Croix, so we decided to do the Cruzan Distillery tour. Our tour guide Shelley was very knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. The tour is $5 per person and you get 2 cocktails and 4 samples. WELL worth the time and money. The tour is only about 25 minutes but... More
