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 enjoyed learning about our favorite rum! Our tour guide Stephanie did a great job. She showed us the facility and talked about the process. We had fun!

Great thing to do on any day. 30 minute tour complete with interesting facts, hopefully a molasses tasting (if the truck happens to be there-totally cool!) and drinks! Buy 6 bottles and have it packed and ready to check on the plane with NO extra check in fee.

The Cruzan Rum Distillery was easy to find, easy to access and super cheap. Make sure you have a credit card, they do not take cash. The tour is quick and informative - Darnell was a great tour guide! After the tour, you get complimentary samples of 4 flavors of rum and two mixed drinks while you relax. I would... More

We were fortunate to make the last tour of the day, at 4:00. It was interesting to see how the rum is made and look into the gigantic fermentation vats. Rum was never flavored until Jim Beam bought Cruzan in 2012. Now, Cruzan makes the rum and sends it to Kentucky for flavoring and bottling. Lots to the process! And... More

Whenever we have guests visit us on the island, Cruzan is a must see. Yesterday, I took my in-laws and my daughter. Stephanie was our tour guide/bartender. She was fantastic. My father in law uses a cane and she was very attentive towards him. She made sure that he was safely walking the grounds and kept our group paced so... More

Darnell our tour guide was informational, entertaining, and a joy to be with. I would highly recommend the tour. I learned about the history of the family business, the process of making the "no hangover guaranteed" rum, and had a great time. Be sure to try his Island Colada free drink, along with 4 free samples and 2 cocktails from... More

We loved the tour, it was very interesting to see the different steps of the distilling process. Our tour guide, Gabriella, was fun and informative. The post-tour tasting of the different rums was even better!! We learned more about the different products and had a great time with the staff and other guests. It was about closing time for the...
