It's a new high tech distillery that not only makes lots of rum, but also its own electric. Besides learning how rum is made it the tour is gives some history of the US Virgin Islands. Of course they offer a tasting after the your. A good place to visit should it rain.

New high tech state of the art rum Distillery with keg aging - manufacturing site. Very good island history exhibit and display. Good shuttle cart tour. nice gift shop. 2 good fresh made exotic um drinks included.
Can buy bottles of good rum for half US price and can take back 6 bottles per person to US as checked baggage - NO charge! they will pack it for you.

I really enjoy brewery and distillery tours and have been on several around the world. So I was very excited to go to the Captain Morgan distillery that is newly opened on St. Croix. I was rather underwhelmed.

The first part of the tour is "self-guided," which means you read a bunch of pretty basic posters that briefly describe the history of St. Croix, the process of distilling rum and the history of the company itself as you make your way to the theater. The informational movie was an extended commercial for Captain Morgan that gave no further information about how rum is distilled. You are than asked to turn off all cameras and mobiles before being escorted to an open-air tram for a slow circle around the distillery as the guide points out what stuff is with very little description. You stop once and they show you what rum looks and smells like during the process of making it. Then it's back to the visitor's center and the tour is over.

You do receive 2 free drinks with the cost of the $10 admission, but leave knowing very little more about the distilling process than you did before you arrived. Compared to the Bacardi Tour on Puerto Rico, this one was really lacking in breadth and depth. We will be touring the Cruzan Distillery tomorrow and I am hoping for a more comprehensive tour.

Captain Morgan is new to St. Croix having relocated their facility from Puerto Rico in 2012. You will learn this and a whole lot more by taking a tour. For 10.00 a person you will each receive two gold coins. The coins can be used for drinks or a discount at the store. Thsi tour is easily worth the price.
The first part of the tour is self guided as you walk past and read banners that contain a detailed history of St. Croix that is both informative and well done. Following the self tour, your next stop is to a theater where you watch a review of Captain Morgan commercials from the past to the present, an overview of the actor who plays Captain Morgan, and a fun overview of his travels throughout the world to promote Captain Morgan. The film is fast paced and entertaining and just the right length. There are some great photo opportunities including one with a statue of the captain himself.
From there your guide takes you on a people mover open air train around the distillery explaining the process of making rum. You get off in a few spots and walk. Our guide was fun and informative. Once you get on the train, no photos are allowed.
At the end of the tour you can sample rum concoctions using your coins. The store is your final destination unless you opt to skip the bar and go straight to the store. You will not be disappointed with the wide variety of Captain Morgan items available for purchase. From T-shirts to bar items, they have it covered. It is close to the airport. We had a 2:30 flight and had time to do the tour at noon. The tour takes about an hour and then it depends how much extra time you take at the bar and store.
This tour is well worth it!
