Easily one of the best things we've done in N.O! Bob was an EXCELLENT Tour guide. Sweet tea vodka while you tour and 5 samples at the end #nobrainer

“Yahoo for Gingeroo.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

Beware....don't try to walk here from the French Quarter. We did not know how far out it was and attempted to walk. After about a mile we flagged down a taxi, and it was at least another 3 miles or more after that....and not in the best neighborhoods. That being said...this place is worth the trip. We took the tour, which was fun because they give you a rum tea or rum punch to enjoy during your tour. It's a small operation, but we enjoyed the history. The staff was friendly and witty. The rum was delish, and the Gingeroo was my favorite. I bought 2 bottles of it but I think my boys (both over 21) drank it before I even got a glass. We also bought a bottle of spiced rum, so I guess I'd better act fast on that one.

“Distillery Tour Good Option on Rainy Day”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

What to do when rain alters your outdoor activity plans? Vist the Old New Orleans Rum Distillery. We arranged for shuttle pick up in the French Quarter. Our affable driver turned out to also be our tour guide and general manager of the distillery, who served guest cups of sweet tea with spiced rum before the tour even began. It was great fun to see how small batches of hand-crafted rum are distilled and by the opportunity to sample the product did a nice job of taking the chill out of an otherwise stormy day.

“If you love rum, this is a must”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013 via mobile

The tour was great and very informative. You get samples of all their rum, and it was all amazing. Transportation provided. For 10 bucks, you get free drinks and free transportation. Best deal in New Orleans, all for the price of one drink elsewhere. It's a don't miss if you're a rum lover.

“Fun Tour, Booze Included!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013 via mobile

This tour was one of the cheapest things we did in NOLA. You'll have to take a cab to get there because it is way off of the beaten path (but cab fare is very reasonable.) We made the mistake of thinking we could walk, but only made it about a quarter of the way before hailing a cab.

You start the tour with a pretty stout drink and then walk the facility and learn how rum is made. You then finish the tour with a sampling of shots of all of the different rum products they produce. The alcohol alone is worth the $10 ticket. Very educational and entertaining. Maybe not a New Orleans "must do" when compared to sampling some of the local foods and cocktails, but if you have the time, this tour is well worth the money!
