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!

“Fun tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2014 NEW

This was a fun tour. The best part was all the sampling after the tour. We got two mixed drinks + 4 samples of different rums! Don't make the same mistake we did and take the last tour of the day. You'll be rushed to get your samples down before they close up the bar.

“Good tour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2014 NEW

Go there for an educational tour and rum tasting ...
Enjoyed it very much.
Go there on rainy day if you don't want to feel trapped in your hotel room.

“OK Tour, Great Pina Colada”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2014 NEW

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 runs the distillery (now owned, she explained, by Jim Beam). At the end of the tour we were able to taste 2 full size cocktails. The choice was Rum Punch and Pina Colada or you could choose 2 of the same cocktail. The Rum Punch was good, but the Pina Colada was great! Luckily, my husband was driving so I was able to imbibe his 2nd drink....enjoyed this stop a lot!
