My family of about 10 went on a tour of the River Antoine Estate. As this is the oldest rum factory in Grenada, they have preserved history by maintaining the old process - a very manual process. From peeling the sugarcane to having a people...More

There is not any formal guides, but we went with Vaughan Francis who gave us a 30 minute walk-through of the distillery, the process and the history. It is definately worth the $2 entrance fee to see how rum is really made using the past...More

The River Antoine Estate is the oldest rum making factory on the island and it is a must see attraction because it still uses the original method to make rum after 250 years production. This is a great education for all ages ( especially children...More

Today we visited the rum distillery and were taken on a guided tour by Patsy. She was a great tour guide--knowledgeable with a good sense of humour. She showed us the complete rum-making process which you get to experience up close. We had three teenagers...More

Stopped here after visiting Belmont Estate. They have made rum here continuously since 1785. I think much of the equipment may be original, certainly looks it. No automation here. They call their rum organic, not sure what that means. Some of it is very potent...More

Entry fee is 2US per person. This distillary uses old labour intensive machinery from the growing of the cane to adding the finished alcohol to each bottle. It was a very interesting tour and at the end we were given samples of their alcohol starting...More

Visited this place 1 week ago and it was so fascinating to see the rum being made from start to finish. The tour was a pretty short but actually shows all processes that the rum goes thru. The process is very natural, traditional and vintage....More

I think I paid USD $7 for a small bottle of rum with chocolate for putting over ice cream.
