Found out about the tour in the hotel “things to do” book and we were so happy we went. Easy shuttle to and from the location and Bob, our tour guide, was great. We stocked up on some great rum to take home.

Thanks to Bob, our host we learned a lot about rum. The business is owned by a local artist who purchased it so it would stay in business. It's a small operation run by people who care about their products. It's hard to find so...More

Very fun, informative tour with Bob! There were only 4 of us, so it was a very personal, intimate tour with trivia and time for questions, jokes and tastings. The pride the distillery has in its product and production is very evident. Delicious, and I...More

I really enjoyed learning about the rum-making process and a little local history. I was a little hesitant because I live here and usually avoid anything touristy at all costs. Bob was our tour leader, and he definitely knew his stuff. It's very laid back,...More

Bob was a great tour guide. You start with a cocktail, a quiz on rum history, a tour of the facility, then a tasting. If you like factory tours, this is a good one. If you like rum, ditto.

They only offer the tour at specific times, so in order to get the exact time we wanted, we booked online in advance. Also, if you are planning on using their shuttle, you definitely need to book in advance. Enjoy!
