We visited the Mount Gay visitor centre as part of a day tour we did through St James Travel & Tours Barbados. The Bajen gentleman who gave us a talk on the history of Mount Gay very enthusiastic & definitely represented the company. After we had a very insightful experience tasting the various rums.

Great visit and accompanying overview of how the rum originated and is made today. Tasted 4 rums and Rhea was an informative and knowledgeable guide who made us feel very welcome. Not being able to book on the longer tour we opted to do the one hour session and used a local taxi to transport us.

My fiance and I had a great time tasting Rum at Mount Gay. We were greeted with complimentary rum punches in a patio area with mist machines to help keep us cool. The tour was great. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and funny. She noticed my fiance could handle his rum so she poured him more during our tasting which he appreciated. We tasted 4 different rums and enjoyed our experience. The rooms for the tour were cool with air conditioning. I would recommend this tasting tour!

This was a marvelous tasting. Short, sweet and delicious. I love shorter tours. We were given the history of Mount Gay and the went on to a taste. I recommend that you taste a little as you will be tasting four different types of rum. My favorites were the Silver and XO. Our guide was funny and very knowledgeable. Oh, yes I forgot to tell you included in the tour is the complementary Rum Punch. Make sure you have a driver or taxi to take you back to your hotel. I enjoyed the tasting so much that came home with four bottles. Well worth the money. You can also get lunch at the factory. This tour was recommended to me by my resort and taxi driver. Please make sure you do it.

Ok, so I like rum and might be biased, but the tour was great! The tour of Mount Gay was, even to me a rum drinker, informative about their brand, their rum was very tasty, and the tour guide was funny, amusing and had some pretty good drink ideas. I would highly recommend this tour even if you are going to visit other rum factories! The distillery has a bar for great mixed rum drinks before and of course, after the tour. And yes, I did buy a souvenir sized liter bottle of the rum shown in the picture above! I love to buy such kinds of souvenirs to take home and share!

What a fun and informative experience! After listening to a short history of the origins of Mount Gay rum, we were treated to a tasting of four different rums from the Mount Gay line. Our guide showed us how to enhance the tasting experience and to discern the various notes of each of the rums we tried. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone visiting Barbados!

Well worth the price.

Our guide (Tina) had the entirety of the tour group chatting and laughing together within minutes of meeting us.

Was extremely impressed with her knowledge of the product and how to read the room and engage with that.

The welcome rum punch and subsequent tasting drinks had us happily on our way home for a nap.

We had a few days to spare in Barbados so decided to slot in a rum tour, and we weren't disappointed! We used the discount to get some pre-tour cocktails, then had an excellent tour by a lady who I unfortunately can't remember the name of. She made the tour informative, and added plenty of humour throughout.

Highly recommended!

Having done this tour likely a dozen times, it never fails to be a great experience. Our guide (can't recall here name at the moment) was excellent and very impressive given she was new at the job. She had a great sense of humour and extensive knowledge of the distillery and history. On this particular tour they skipped the video (not sure if that has been scanned or not). We sampled the usual suspects and culminated with a few extra drinks crafted by the mixologist extraordinaire Ryan. The visitors centre has some great gifts and occasionally a one off bottle that you may not be able to pick up elsewhere. Will be back again for sure. FYI, this is for the Visitor Centre tour and not the distillery tour in St. Lucy (which is on my list to do).
