A great afternoon out, you can tour the working distillery for free. We paid to do the tasting of the basic and premium rums and learnt a lot about how Bajans like to drink their rum. Definitely worth a visit.

Our primary objective was to taste the rums. We paid an extra fee to taste their premium rums and spirits. It was a fabulous introduction to all the high-end rums and spirits. They have a real breadth of styles. The person guiding us was very entertaining and helpful. We also visited the various museums and self-guided tour. All were good.

This is our third visit over the years, and it has always been quiet and peaceful, without the tourists or regular daily tours that the more commercial Mount Gay distillery organises. Why it should be so quiet I don’t know, but I’m always glad it is as it is a peaceful oasis and a delightful place for an hour or... More

I'd heard of foursquare for years but never driven past it or thought it would be a fun rum tour. One day, on the way back to The Crane, we came across it. The long entrance gives no indication that there is anything to do here, but a working distillery. We pressed on; passed an odd rummery themed children's park... More

After looking at trip advisor for which rum distillery to go to on Barbados, we chose Foursquare. It lived up to expectations! We had a hire car so drove there. Firstly the self guided tour (follow the yellow feet on the floor) of the real working distillery and bottling plant was amazing. Felt more real than tours back home in... More

Fortunately we took a bus to the distillery, so didn't need to drive home. The self-guided tour was much better a presentation than the Mountgay Commercial version, and was free! The tasting bar was staffed by Debirah and Wayne, who presented a knowledgeable, entertaining, tasting at a very reasonable price. a local lunch-truck provided local food for lunch and the... More

We read the reviews of Mount Gay and this place and picked Foursquare. We were so pleased we did. The site is attractive and the self-guided tour around the rum - making plant was interesting and informative..The folk museum, although small is really nicely done and well worth a look. As far as the tastings go, you pay if you... More

We had a really nice visit and gained a good insight into the complexities of rum production and the innovative ideas that Foursquare use to produce such wonderful rum. I'll be sure to buy a bottle or two of their dark stuff, which tastes great. Just wish I wasn't driving !

We only knew about Foursquare as our hotel recommended it. Really glad we made the effort to go-it was great to see a real distillery (rather than the Mt Gay Visitor Centre) the rum smell in the air was delicious! We loved the rum tasting and the little museum was fascinating. Would recommend if you're a regular visitor to Barbados... More

On our last trip to Barbados, we decided to go to Foursquare. Having been on the Mt. Gay Rum Tour on a rainy day several years ago, we were expecting the same type of commercialized tour. This was very different. You walk along at your own pace following yellow footprints on the ground and reading informational signs along the way.... More
