This was one of my favorite experiences in NOLA! We went using the shuttle from the French Quarter, which was so convenient! For $15 we got a full tour (with lots of background on the company and rum in general, technical expertise, and funny jokes), plus tastes of all their amazing rum and multiple cocktails. Definitely a worthwhile experience! Would... More

I had a great time on this tour. It was so easy to catch the shuttle in the French Quarter. It's not too long so it doesn't eat up your whole day, and it's interesting learning a bit about rum and New Orleans. I love that it is a small local business. My only regret is not buying lots more... More

I booked this tour as part of a weekend celebration for my wife's birthday. We caught the shuttle from the French Market to the distillery, and our shuttle driver, Bob, ended up being our distillery guide as well. We were served a delicious rum punch cocktail as soon as we arrived, and Bob started the tour in the tasting room... More

I rode a bicycle from the garden district... Majorly hungover... And it was great. I think it was more like 2010 but when I got there I met up with less sweaty tourists who were less than thrilled to be there. Tbh, the alcohol smell made me nauseous so if you're hungover, maybe skip it. After the great and informative... More

The tour is great and they allow you to taste every rum! They even include a cocktail at the beginning. We've gone twice and really enjoyed each time.

The distillery produces pretty good rums, which by itself worths the tour and tasting. The tasting was ok, and the price is on the average. However, the tour wasn't that good. Although our guide did everything he could to entertain us and to show the distillery, it is nothing comparing to other distillery/winery we could visit outside the USA. We... More

The tour was very informative. Learned all there is to know about rum. We are already looking for local retailers especially for Gingeroo!

We have been to NewOrleans at least a dozen times. This was our first trip to the OldNewOrleansRumDistillery. We booked/paid in advance online ($15 each). Where to catch the free shuttle was clear and it was so convenient (behind stall #27 in the FrenchMarket)! We were greeted with a delicious HotRumCider followed by a tour. Then, we came back into...

We made an advance reservation and were picked up by van at the French Market. The distillery was a short 10 minutes away. Bob, an enthusiastic gentleman with a fun personality, was both our driver and our informative tour guide. Upon arrival at the distillery, we were impressed by the lovely post-Impressionist paintings on the wall. We learned that these... More
