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!

This tour was around $8 a person and it included a tour with a super knowledgeable and friendly tour guide (DAG) and 2 drinks and a couple of shots. We went here because we had time to kill before our flight and the staff gladly stored our luggage for us while we were on tour. DAG was funny and informative... More

Excellent tour! This was our second time visiting and they've definitely made improvements to the tour in the past 3 years! The factory is the same, but the tour includes much more information now, as well as two cocktails (large!) and four samples of rum afterward. The gift shop is nice - lots of things to take home, if you... More

This was a delightful way to spend an hour or so. Our tour guide was knowledgeable, not only about how rum is made, but about the island's history. I knew her name at the beginning of the tour, but after the samples... I think it was Jerusha? Jerisha? She was wonderful. After the tour, we were able to have samples... More

The tour wasn't long and drug out; perfect length. The staff in the visitor center was friendly and fun to chat with. Taking this tour is the perfect solution when you are "beached" out and need to change it up a bit.

Afterwards we were treated to 2 mixed rum drinks and to 4 more tastings. Of course there is plenty of rum of many flavors for duty-free purchase and a... More

This is a nice spot to go take a tour.Its only $8 for about a 20 minute tour that ends with sampling many of their drinks. Definitely a deal if you like rum or want to learn how it is made.
