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.

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

A must when you visit St. Croix. Be prepared to taste test so many flavors of rums. Best price on rum anywhere. It will be tough to choose the six bottles you are allowed to take home Stateside. The workers are so laid back and cool.

The tour was casual but fun. The price can't be beat. $5 includes two cocktails & 4 rum tastings. Make sure you eat before you go & then hang out for a bit.

The charge is $5pp for a 15-20 minute tour of rum being made in St. Croix. Afterwards you are given 2 cocktails (8oz) and 8-10 half-shots of hundreds of flavors of rum. The saddest part to me was the closing of the local branding, etc. All rum is shipped to Jim Beam for bottling now - but how amazing are... More

Our tour guide was very helpful and friendly, and was the bartender. I was driving so I didn't get to enjoy many drinks, but for the price it's a great deal. It's a good environment in general and a place you should go while on the island.

Our tour guide was the Puerto Rican princess. The best part of the tour was her knowledge and smile. Thank you. P.S. she makes a mean "Painkiller"

This is such a great little gem of a place to spend part of an afternoon! Well worth the 5.00 admission price. Great tour of the facility and explanation of the rum aging process. Our guide Shelly (Forgive for any misspelling) was an excellent guide and very friendly! After the tour you can partake in tasting the different rums and... More

One of the must do's on the Island, with our 5 month tour guide at the helm it was a very informative experience. Thanks for your help with our choices. 300 years of history is hard to compete with!! Educational for all ages.
