The Cruzan Rum Distillery welcomes you to come visit our "Don't Hurry" atmosphere. Learn how to create delicious cocktails and relax island style! The Visitors' Pavilion houses the Gift Shop & Rum Boutique, in addition to our tasting bar. This guided walking tour takes you on the aromatic journey of turning molasses into rum at the only still functioning historic distillery site in the Virgin Islands.

This is an outdoor walking tour that requires climbing stairs and possible uneven walking surfaces. We try to run our tours in either rain or shine, so be prepared for the weather conditions of the day. No matter the weather conditions, guests of legal drinking age will be rewarded with 2 sample cocktails at the conclusion of the tour.

Low Season (May - October) hours are 9 - 5 pm, Monday to Friday, and 10 - 2 pm on Saturdays. We are open on Sundays, 10 - 2 pm, when a cruise ship is in port. During High Season we open every Sunday. Tours leave every 30 minutes from the top of the hour. The last tour departs an hour before closing. Cash is not accepted, so please bring your Visa, Mastercard, or Discover Card.

Do hurry to the Don't Hurry!

We just spent 5 days on our first visit to St. Croix. On Day 2, we ran into some other Americans, who were on their 6th visit to the island. When we asked them about which of the distilleries to visit, they said the Cruzan tour was way more fun. The "other" place has you watching videos and marketing-type stuff... More

Love hearing the history of this place and the smells of rum in production. Be sure to take your samples at the end of the tour, you will not be disappointed! Be... More

Our tour guide - Abigail - was a lot of fun and knowledgeable about the rum making process. We toured various areas of the distillery and then capped off the tour with a visit to the bar where Abigail made us a couple drinks and we got shots of the different flavors of Cruzan rum - very fun! Also, we... More

A relaxed guiding and test of rum, but rather difficult to find. We missed the sign at the main road. Small distillery in the Jim Bean group. They are making a lot of tasty rum, and are pride of doing it! Guide had very much information to share and was skillful in making drinks. Pick your driver back home before... More

One of the highlights of our vacation. Jason was a awesome tour guide! Definitely will recommend him anytime. He was very personable, kind, funny, and very knowledgeable. Answered all my questions to a T. Cruzan rum is something everyone should try. There were beanbag and ring toss games if one gets bored or wants to challenge another to a drinking... More

Great family tour led by Yeshua (sp?). We had to wait 25 minutes for the tour, but enjoyed playing cornhole with our kids. The tour is about 30 minutes and is interesting to see and learn how the rum is made. The cocktails at the end were tasty, and they even made non-alcoholic drinks for the kids. Would definitely recommend... More

My wife and I aren't big drinkers but you don't have to be to get an appreciation for the old and new process for making rum. Very interesting and fun with our guide and bartender Stephanie. After the tour there was a tasting and despite not being a big drinker was wonderful. Lots of ways to enjoy rum!

The tour is great, but the rum is what you really come here for. We had great tasting and bought our allowed 6 bottles each. Abigail took exceptional care of us. This is another must do St Croix activity!!!
