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 is our second time to the island, and we finally made some time for the distillery tour. We're only sorry we didn't do it last time! Our guide, Madga, was so knowledgeable and was very entertaining as well. No where in the mainland US can you get this up close and personal to the distilling process. It's fascinating, and... More

I learned a great deal about local history on the distillery tour, which I hadn't expected. I also learned a lot about rum, which I kind of did expect. The people working there were very friendly. By the way: US citizens can buy up to 6 bottles (super cheap, by the way) and check it for free back to the... More

I've been through this tour 4 or 5 times now. Every tour guide has been great. Anisha(spelling) was the last tour guide and she was wonderful. You get a few jokes thrown in with your tour. Most people don't think about or don't really care about where or how their drinks are created. This is a great way to find... More

$8 for a 30 minute tour and generous tasting! What a fun way to spend the afternoon. Our tour guide showed us all over the property, she was very knowledgeable without being boring. We tasted molasses right out of the delivery truck. After the tour comes the tasting, 4 rums and 2 cocktails of your choice. They also have a... More

The tour was great and the guide was extremely knowledgeable about St. Croix history as well as the making of rum at Cruzan. It was a great day that ended with rum tasting! Tour was $8.00. Can't beat that!

Had a great tour of the distillery while on an Island tour. This tour requires quite a bit of walking, climbing steps and ladders to see all the stages of making rum. Much more complicated than I ever thought. At the end of the tour you belly-up to the bar for 2 rum cocktails of your choice (and there are... More

They offer a lot of tasting after the tour and while the tour was interesting, standing around the tasting bar and meeting other tour people was even better. We took photos of the four pages of recipes for rum drinks so we could try them at home, because the ones we tried were so good. We learned that expensive rum... More

Our guide was excellent, knowledgable, engaging and friendly And the taste test was lots of fun. Would highly recommend and do it again. The opposite of the Captain Morgan tour which was stuffing, rushed you thru the facility and NOT customer service friendly at all. All captain Morgan company wants is your money! We will be supporting Cruzan Rum not... More
