“Short and Sweet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

It was a very informative tour albeit quite short. They have a rum tasting and nice bar on the premises. I also think they do a buffet lunch twice a week. Would definitely recommend as it is a strong part of the culture and heritage in Barbados

“Good trip if in the area or weather is bad”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

This is a good place to visit if in the area or the weather is bad. The tour is short, about 45 minutes. They only bottle here so don't expect to see the whole process first hand. There is a video (air conditioned room), tasting of the different rum, and visiting the bottling area. About a 25 minute walk to Bridgetown and about a 10 minute walk to the Oval.

“Rumilicious!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

A very enjoyable tour. Interesting & great to taste their different rums - including the Extra Old. Their Rum Punch recipe is amazing - we've been making it at home ever since taking the tour. Don't miss this when when in Barbados!
