Owner description: 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!

We took a day offf from the Caribbean beaches. Went to the distillery. Abagail and Jason were our guides!, They were very knowledgable about St. Croix and their rum distillation operations. A lot of fun and enjoyed our private tour. Well worth the $8.00 /person admission fee for our fun fact filled private tour. Thanks Abagail and Jason.

We were on a cruise and decided to visit. What a great place to see, and taste. We had a personal tour from one of the ladies there and she was very nice and VERY knowledgeable about the history of the island and the distillery.

although the distillery was not producing rum at the time of my visit i fully enjoyed the tour. It is normally $8/person but since there was no rum production we paid $7/person. This included the tour, 2 drinks, and 4 tastings. The staff was very knowledgable and fun to be with!

I thought it was a great, informational tour. One of the highlights of our trip. All the free samples at the end of the tour were great too of course!

It is hands down the best distillery/brewery tour I have EVER been on. It was a great value at $8/person which included as many tasting as you would like as well as two free mixed drinks (piña colada and a rum runner) at the end of the tour. Our tour guide Andre was informative and personable. He was willing to... More

NO trip to STX is complete without a stop at the Cruzan Rum distillery. Lovely tour, nice gift shop and great pricing on your favorite Cruzan rum to bring back to your final destination. They will even provide an airport box so that this will NOT count as checked baggage for your return flight to the US on major airlines.

We stopped for a tour on our way out to the airport on our last day on the island. The tour is $7 per person and well worth the ticket. We went late in the day, possibly the last tour, so our group was smaller. The smaller the group, the better the tour. Our tour guide was very entertaining. Unfortunately,... More
