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!

We went during a week they didn't produce :( Only happens twice a year. It was still fun and the tour was entertaining and informative. The staff is friendly and you can get samples at the end of the tour. Also a fun photo opportunity with a big bottle of Cruzan rum!

fun tour, didn't last too long, learned a lot about making rum and free shots/drinks afterwards. You could buy bottles to take home and they are much cheaper than in the US.

Abby our tour guide was knowldegable, friendly and fun. If you can answer some of her question, you get additional tasting (she does give hints) For $8 you get a really cool tour which ends with several tastings and 2 amazing cocktails off of their menu...YUM!🍹👏

We had Yashira as our tour guide who was a lot of fun. We learned a lot & it was very educational. At the end of the tour we got to taste the Rum & it was fantastic. Thank you for a great time.

I would not have specifically chosen this as a tour destination. However, as part of a general tour it gave a glimpse of the island today and it's commercial history. It's worth the stop.

Great tour and not very crowded. Tour guide as great and extremely knowledgeable. Complete tour through all aspects of distilling rum. After the tour, get 4 different rum-based drinks to sample (Decent size). On site store so you can purchase what you where tasting. Worth a couple of hour investment.

Nice open air tour and great sample drinks at the end of it. Abigail was great and very informative. Well worth the $8 each and we had a huge mango from the giant tree by the bar.

Very informative and up close tour. Well worth the price. We had 2 free drinks and 4 samples each. Tour guide welcomed any extra questions and all staff we encountered were friendly. Kids enjoyed it too, especially the virgin piña colada.

It's a short but interesting tour, and at the end you get to sample any and all flavors of the Cruzan rums! Easy to find and a big hit.

Visiting Cruzan Rum really gives you a little piece of the island's history and culture. The guides who were there were all locals that could give you the history of the island and the history of the distillery. We went a little early in the day so my husband and I received a private tour. We could ask all the... More
