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!

Jason our guide was great. We went on a Monday, there were very few people there. We expected to have to wait for more people to arrive, NOPE. Jason took us out and we got our own private tour. After the tour you can enjoy a couple rum drinks made by your guide. Jason was a wealth of information. He... More

A short cab ride from the port, you are at the Plant for a door to door tour. Being from the food distribution industry, I was impressed of the processing and transportation involved; from the supply chain to the import/export of ingredients, barrels and US - Asian connection. Alex was our guide and should be considered a great asset to... More

Okay, I admit I don't much like tours of businesses, so only went along reluctantly because others wanted to see the rum refinery. Had heard Cruzan was better than Capt. Morgan. Can't say on that, but Cruzan was actually a darned nice stop. You may bridle at the $8 entry fee. And don't even try for a seniors/group/good guy discount.... More

This was a last minute stop for us on our way out to the beach and we were so glad we went! The tour is under 30 minutes but very informative and the guide (ours was Shelly) was awesome. The molasses truck pulled in before we started the tour and was in the process of emptying as we walked through... More

The best tour guide and a great tour of the Cruzan Rum Distrillery! After the tour, a chance to sample their Cruzan Rum either in a Rum Punch or in a Piña Colada plus shots of their various rum flavorings.

This was an enjoyable, inexpensive tour. Abigail was our tour guide. She was very knowledgeable and fun. At the end of the tour, we took advantage of the Cruzan Rum samples. The fact that this is the only Cruzan Rum Distillery in the world made it even more special.

We had a great tour here with Norman! YAY, Norman! Really enjoyed - we had about 10 in our group (early am). Had quite a nice time at the "sample" bar afterwards. The Pina Colada is the BEST we've ever had and the Rum Punch is definitely a punch! :) Found a new favorite drink, too - thanks to Norman!

We had an awesome time at the distillery. The tour lasted slightly over a half hour and then we did the tasting. Our guide was very knowledgeable and gave us history of the island and the distillery. For $8, we got 2 mixed drinks and 4 samples. Definitely worth the time and money to take a trip here!

Who knew there were so many steps to making rum! Our tour guide, Shelly, at the Cruzan Rum Distillery not only knew them all, but made a mean Cruzan Confusion at the end. This was a great way to spend an afternoon on the island.

For years the only option for Rum on STX,now Captain Morgan's offers a choice. The distillery visit is worth it if you want some history to go with your booze. A recent repeat visit had showed some flaws - too many parts of the process were talked about rather than demonstrated, a failure to accept cash (good for all debts... More
