What to expect
Following pickup at select hotel locations in Castries, travel out of town to St. Lucia Distillers. Pass banana plantations and appreciate views of Morne Fortune on the way to the distillery, located near Marigot Bay. Meet your 'Rum Ambassador,' the distillery's specialized guide, for your behind-the-scenes tour of the distillery. Several different brands of rum are manufactured here, including Chairman's Reserve Spiced Rum, 1931, and Admiral Rodney. Learn about the rum-making process, from sugarcane to finished product. Visit the 'rum buffet,' to taste several distinct rums and liqueurs, including Marigot Bay Liqueurs' chocolate orange and coconut flavors. Ask your guide if any additional premium rums are available for tasting; the selection varies by the day. Take this opportunity to purchase any standouts to bring home with you. Then head to Castries Market, a 100-year-old farmers market, for a chance to purchase spices, fruits, or locally made souvenirs. After enjoying your tour steeped in the culture, history, and taste of rum, head back to Castries for drop-off at select hotels.

Sugar to Rum - with Stormy Norman
I am not sure this is the right spot to place review. I booked this tour through my hotel. Norman was great. He had a lot of personality. He drove us to the rum distillery for the sugar to rum tour. Once we got there Carl was our guide through the factory. He explained the rum making process and then took us through the Carnival Room. Once through those two portions you are allowed to sample up to 17 different rums. My wife and I brought back two that we liked. After leaving the distillery Norman drove us down to Marigot Bay where we took a small boat ride over to Doo Little. He ordered rum punch for us. We loved the overall experience and would do it again. Thank you to both Norman and Carl for the fun experience. Best wishes to you both.

Well Presented and Informative Tour
Went to the afternoon tour, The tour guide went through the history of the distillery and the rum making process. Very informative and well presented topped up with the sample tasting. Definitely one for the list whether you drink rum or not! You'll be blown away by the experience of not the Rum itself!

Must Do Excursion if you like Rum!
The hubby is a big collector of alcohol you can't get in the states so we added this excursion to our list. The tour guide was very pleasant and knowledgeable about the rum making process. We werer able to sample many different rums and there was a store to purchase as well! Overall great experience.

Rum for all
Oct 2018
The tour itself we did not find impressive. We were eaten by mosquitoes whilst viewing the still pots but at US10 for all you can taste selection of about 10 - 15 rums there is not much you can complain about. We drove and therefore did not have a time limit as others had given they were on a tour and so only had about 10 minutes or so to try the rums. We spent a solid 30 - 45 mins enjoying these.
