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!

This tour it is really great. I took it with my boyfriend and were lucky enough to be the only ones for the tour session. The tour guide was Stephanie which was awesome. She went over all of the details of the production process and always asked if we have any additional question. Also give us time to take as... More

Not only is this the best rum (Single barrel) in the world, but the factory tour is world class, if you want to learn how rum is really made an aged--also the factory itself is a piece of history itself---a must stop if your a rum lover.

This is a great tour. No need to book ahead everything is very laid back but still efficient. Our tour guide was great although we never got his name. And what a bargain! It was like $7-8 a person and then at the end you get I think 4 samples and 2 full rum drinks - again per person. We... More

It was hot on this particular July day, the breeze helped, but we were all sweaty then it was over. The choice of any 2 rum drinks out of close to 20 options and 2 mini shots made it worth it. The Pain Killer and the Cin on the Beach were delicious. We topped them both off with cherries soaked... More

Entertaining and fun. Even the kids enjoyed it. We were able to taste 5-year-old rum straight from the barrel! Your tour fee also includes several drinks/tastes at the end.

Totally enjoyed the tour and information we learned. Our guide was so nice and even remembered my son when we went back to the store a couple of days later.
