If this distillery in on your way, go. If you want to buy good rum, go. If you want to see a very very old (almost run down house), go. Otherwise, there is way more to see and do in Tortola.
The rhum is indeed excellent. And like other people said, you can taste sample of the various kinds of rhum for $1

This was a neat little place to visit in Cane Garden Bay. They make Pure Cane Rum and for a $1.00 you can sample each of the four kinds. They explained the difference between the white, freshly made rum, the 4 year aged rum, the 10 year aged rum, and the flavored ladies rum!!! It's an easy walk from the beach, but we stopped by as part of a taxi tour. Definitely worth a stop if you are in Cane Garden Bay. Also there is a little snack stop out front where you can buy sodas for those underage :-)

This building has such a fascinating, old world charm (over 400 years old and it shows!) and the people there know their stuff.

I've got to respect any place that still produces rum on such a small scale. The 10 year aged rum was so smooth that you need to pick up a bottle for yourself - 20 dollars for the 10 year with prices as low as 10 for the white rum. For a buck per person, you get to sample all 4 different types, which were all quite good.

The only down side to it is that I would have loved a tour of the building with a little more history about it. Very cool place. Very good rum.

I love this place. Must be the best Rum on the planet first of all. The only place to get it is at the distillery. I take my charter guests there al they all really seem to enjoy it, well they do give samples of there Rum before you buy. The guys who work there are full of info on the Rum making process. I can't wait to go back.

A great way to see how rum was produced back in time. Guide was friendly and knowledgeable. The samples were great! Able to buy bottles to take home.
