Description: The Cruzan Rum Distillery welcomes you to come visit our "Don't Hurry...
The Cruzan Rum Distillery welcomes you to come visit our "Don't Hurry" atmosphere. Learn how to create delicious cocktails and relax island style! The Visitors' Pavilion houses the Gift Shop & Rum Boutique, in addition to our tasting bar. This guided walking tour takes you on the aromatic journey of turning molasses into rum at the only still functioning historic distillery site in the Virgin Islands. This is an outdoor walking tour that requires climbing stairs and possible uneven walking surfaces. We try to run our tours in either rain or shine, so be prepared for the weather conditions of the day. No matter the weather conditions, guests of legal drinking age will be rewarded with 2 sample cocktails at the conclusion of the tour. Low Season (May - October) hours are 9 - 5 pm, Monday to Friday, and 10 - 2 pm on Saturdays. We are open on Sundays, 10 - 2 pm, when a cruise ship is in port. During High Season we open every Sunday. Tours leave every 30 minutes from the top of the hour. The last tour departs an hour before closing. Cash is not accepted, so please bring your Visa, Mastercard, or Discover Card. Do hurry to the Don't Hurry!

If you've ever been on a tour of a distillery, they're really all kind of the same. We were the last tour through, and it was only the 2 of us. Our guide was pleasant, but she kind of rushed us through. The girls working the counter were kind of eager to get us out of there too. The booze... More

This was our second trip to Cruzan Distillery. The first time we took the tour with Shelly...we came back 7 months later and she remembered us, so she is the best at customer service and making you feel at home. Go on the tour, but ask for Shelly, because she is the best!

We just visited St. Croix for my nephew's wedding and was suggested that we do this tour. It was a five star must see, very interesting on the history of the Cruzan Family and of course how they make rum.Tour only 20 -30 minutes long and of course the best was at the end with two free drinks per person...

Was there at end of cruise ship day so staff were winding down and chilling out. Our bar tender was generous with rum samples and fun stories. Very enjoyable but again we were at a great time (end of busy day). Was crazy and disorganized when cruise ship people were there. Tour very informative. Loved the molasses smell on the... More

It doesn't take long and the people who work there are very nice. Parking was a bit confusing, but not really a problem... very laid back.. like the rest of the Island!

Love this tour. This was the 2nd time to take it and still learned something new. The 20-30 minute tour takes you right into and around the workers. Nothing is automated. However , I have learned that if there is a cruise ship in port DO NOT go. With all the people invading the island they seem not to be... More

We recently returned from a week long vacation to St Croix. One of our spots was the Cruzan Rum Distillery. Abigail was our tour guide and was knowledgeable, upbeat, with a very vibrant personality. She answered all our questions throughout the tour and maintained her upbeat personality and humor. At the conclusion she jumped in to help her fellow employees... More

Our tour was really fun. We enjoyed learning all about how the rum is made. Abby was our tour guide and she really made the tour a good time for all of us. Don't forget to get your tickets for the beverages after the tour, this of course is the best part.

This is a must do when in St. Croix. One of the funnest things we did while on the island. They give a wonderful tour of the grounds and even let you sample the rum. Our tour guide Shelly was top notch and did a great job explaining how the rum is made.
