Unable to taste rum unless you pay $7 for tour and tasting. Kids not allowed. Everyone we saw, including us , had kids so I'm not sure what you do. $7 seems pricey for the experience. We skipped, though still bought rum. When in Rome...

Stopped here while enjoying the island. The rum was delicious and smooth. The tour was interesting and there was a nice gift shop. The tasting was informative. I Would definitely recommend. And don't forget to order a pink poodle while there

Friendly folks with a cute little distillery. They pride themselves on quality. Really explained the process well, too. I was impressed with the smoothness of their products and uniqueness of the flavors. Especially the Vanilla and Gold, aged in bourdon barrels.

We enjoyed a great and friendly tour in their production space. We leaned something new about making rum out of three simple ingredients: water, sugar and yeast! It’s clear that this company takes great pride in making delicious 80 proof rum. We walked away with...More
