Not a bad place to buy your rum buts more of a bottling plant although they do give you the history of their rum and how it started and through the years which was pretty good

The rum was good and reasonably priced. People were very friendly except the 2 guys that wanted my husband to pay them for taking 2 pictures of the old cars that were nearby.

Really enjoyed this tour. The rum casks are kept in very low light to protect them and the rum inside. Samples were given to each member of the tour at the end. The coconut and pineapple rum were amazing - and the prices were excellent.
