“New Orleans Rum Tour A Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

We had the priviledge of touring the New Orleans rum distillery last month. What a pleasant surprise. Bob picked us up at our hotel, and was bus driver, tour guide and bar tender all rolled into one. The tour is well worth the money ($15) and once there, you receive a sufficient amount of rum samples to make the afternoon very enjoyable! Bob is a real sweetheart and makes the tour very interesting and informative! We would recommend this tour for sure!!

“$10 great time”

Its far from the quarter, so u have to catch a cab, but its worth it. The tour is informative, but the RUM, is really good! Will walk away feeling good.

“A Fun Quick Stop.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

It's a little off the beaten path, but a fun little diversion, and a great growing little distillery. Bob, one of the 9 full time employees, gave us a great tour of the working facility, with a well rounded tasting at the end of the tour. We ended up buying a couple of bottles of their 10 y/o rum, to be opened for VERY special occasions, down the road, YUM!!

“Great off the beaten path tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

Our guide, Bob, was very informative about the process of distilling rum. and the history of their distillery. The walk through the building and equipment amazes one that 9 full time employees can produce so much rum in such a small place. The staff were friendly, there is very nice art, and you get to taste all of their product before you leave. Highly recommend for the rum enthusiast.

“A great little operation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Was a bit delayed as their van got in an accident (we got there early by cab). They kept us going with hard sweet tea as we waited for people to arrive by other, by the time the tour started we were well "prepared" for seeing how rum making is done. Its a small but successful little distillery. They make a good product, and enjoy doing it. The tour gives an interesting history. It was worth the wait.
