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 rented a car during our recent visit to St. Croix and stopped by the Cruzan Rum Distillery while we were there. The tour was OK (I did learn a lot about how rum was made), but we couldn't see too much because of some maintenance that was going on. Our guide was actually a member of the family that... More

The rum tour was good, but they weren't making rum that day due to routine maintenance. The samples are ample and extremely tasty cocktails are well made with creativity. The product is very affordable and they will even pack it for the flight home if you buy 4 or more bottles.

Great tour, I've been to the cruzan rum distillery a few times but not recently, it's been updated but the tour still includes many "behind the scenes" parts which put you right next to the tubs of fermenting rum. The staff was very knowledgeable and friendly, Andre was great. A must see when visiting St Croix

Stopped at the Cruzan distillery as part of an island tour. We got there between the larger cruise ship buses so our tour size was manageable. Abigail, our guide was very informative and really made some wonderful cocktails at the end of the tour. Just enjoying the drinks was certainly worth the price ($8). Bought a six pack of flavored...

A very fun, entertaining, educational experience which only takes about an hour. Learning about the history of cruzan rum and how they make it was very interesting. The tour guide Abigail was awesome and the free drinks after are def worth the trip!

We stopped by on a non cruise ship day and there were only 4 others on our tour. Shelly did an excellent job describing the the whole process of how Cruzan makes their rum. She was able to answer all questions and also mixes up some great drinks. Speaking of drinks, after the tour we were treated to two drinks... More

The cost was $8 The tour guide didn't seem to know much, she was not able to answer most questions. We also wanted to look at the distillation tower but we're not allowed to. The $8 covered the cocktails and shots at the end, which were all very tasty. So, if you are going for the drinks it's worth it,... More

We shot out to the distillery to kill some time in between activities, forgetting that a cruise ship was in town. We arrived in the middle of the chaos and could hardly get anyone's attention to purchase tour tickets. A nice employee at the register told us what was going on and recommended that we come later in the week... More
