We were on a crusie and just wanted to do the distillery tour. My husband, my friend and I took a local taxi up to the distillery and took the tour. It was very informative and the best part was the tasting. We ended up buying 4 bottles of rum and two minibar mixed boxes. Great rum, great place.

The staff at the Distillery was friendly, fun and it was wonderful and a throw back to the old days to be so up front and personal with the distillery process. At the very end of the exact right length tour we were treated to taste testing and rums and even a few drinks. I would highly recommend this to any visitor. I am a new Cruzan fan!

Artisanal distillery yet still resist international groups and offers very good rums hope he has come to survive all of this in the coming years. The most was of course the tasting at the end which is very appreciated.

It was an imformative tour on how rum is being produced in St.Croix. A very nice guide took us around the plant while explaining various steps, some of them still very traditional in manufacturing rum out of sugar cane residue called molasses. Five bucks even gets you two tastey rum drinks. I don't understand why some people complain, where can you get two drinks on the island for $5 ?

Our tour was very short, about 15 minutes, and went over only the very basics. No history, few descriptions, all delivered in a monotone. I suspect the quality of the tour varies dramatically depending upon who is presenting it as another tour guide we saw from a distance seemed to be giving a lot more information. At least it was cheap and we got two free drinks at the end!

For a more thorough nd miter training rum distillery tour, go to Bacardi on Puerto Rico. That one rocked! Interesting, informative and fun!
