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!

Went to Cruzan Rum Tour and had a wonderful time. Abigail does a great tour. She is proud of the facility, the island and the product and it shows. We enjoyed the sampling and drink part of the tour. Be sure to make your Cruzan purchases there. Everything is bubble wrapped and boxed. Made it all safely back to NY.... More

The cost is now 8 dollars per person. Basically you are paying for the 2 drinks that they give you. Your choice is a weak Pina colada or a weaker Rum Punch. Its not like you can pick and chose a drink. The tour was ok. There are 3 stations our tour guide took us to. The first was where... More

Went on the Cruzan Rum Tour with delightful tour guide Valerie ...she was very informative and knowledgable. If you are planning to visit St. Croix this is a must see. Samples are included in the price so you get to taste before you buy! My husband and I were very impressed with Valerie and would visit again! Sadie from Pennsylvania

This is a fun thing to do. Andre does a great tour of the facilities and then takes you back to bar for the important part. Had some great drinks and sampled some flavors. All good. In addition to Andre every staff member we encountered was helpful and friendly. Put this on your list.

The distillery tour was fun, and for $4, including 6 tastings and 2 mixed drinks, it was a great value! We ended up buying 6L of rum to bring back!!! TIP: If you buy a box of the rum, it flies back to the US as a free checked bag as long as 1 bottle in the box is Cruzan... More

Our party of six enjoyed the short walking tour of the distillery. Valerie, our amiable guide, deftly inserted just enough technical facts about the distillation process to make the presentation interesting. We also were impressed by the unscripted compliments she gave to her coworkers.Cruzan is lucky to have her as an employee. The other two ladies who helped with our... More

My friend and I toured the Cruzan Distillery on a Tuesday afternoon. It was $4 and we got two drinks and 4 samples. We were the only two people on the tour (which I loved!). Our tour guide Shelly was very friendly and so knowledgeable of the distilling process. I highly recommend this to anyone visiting St. Croix, even if... More

For $4.00 a person you get a very informative tour about the distillery and the island. You also get 2 drinks and 4 shots to sample their many favors of rum. But they don't seem to keep track because we taste way more then 4. Lol

We honeymooned in St Croix Sept 29-Oct 4th... this is a GREAT time to go to the island. It is slow season and we found ourselves having so much with the locals being that there were little to no tourists. As everyone says, $5 gets you a tour, two cocktails, and 4 samples. The flavored rums are 1 liter bottles... More
