While there is not much to see in the actual distillation process, anyone who is visiting the west end of Tortola (Smuggler's Cove Beach, Cane Garden Beach, etc.) should take a few minutes to visit this distillery if you at all like rum. For a mere $1, you receive sample tastes of their four rums and the 10-year aged rum... More

Very cool piece of history. Just a shack of a distillery but very cool to see. Family has been at it for multiple generations and it is fun to imagine the type of people who have bought this rum throughout history (pirates?? English Navy??). But don't expect a long visit. Tour is 30mins max.

We stopped briefly at Callwood Distillery on our way back to Road Town after lunch. This is a very small artisanal distillery; there is room for 3 or 4 couples inside the building at a time. A quick explanation of the distilling process can, for the princely sum of one dollar, be followed by a tasting of the four varieties... More

Not really a tour but interesting 20 minute stop to check out the distillery, marvel at the fruit trees and taste their wares

If you visit Cane Garden Bay, walk up the road for a quick visit to this historic distillery. It is basically just one room, in which you can do a tasting of their rums (four types when we visited), then buy bottles at a very reasonable price.

Very authentic rum distillery. This place has been making the real deal for a long time. We enjoyed talking to the employee and tasting the different rum offerings.

At least that was what Matthew said. Haven't tried to put it to the test. Fun for a quick stop. Tasting was inexpensive. Pictures free if you bought something. 10 year old rum $20/bottle.

We stopped here and you can buy 4 shots of aged rum for $1. These rums are great. You can get a small bottle for $5 and larger one for $10. They make the rum right there. It is in an old building that is hot as heck!!!

Only local distillery left on Tortola. $1 buys you a sample of all they make. Well worth a stop if you have the time, we were on a Bareboat Charter and it was an easy walk from the Dingy dock in Cane Garden Bay. They only make 25 gallons a day, and sell bottles for $5-$20... Get it while you... More
