“If you like unique cocktails... try this!”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

If you are adventurous, try the habanero mango martini. My first one was full bore hot and burned my lips, but was strangely satisfying when the mango caught up. It took a good long time to sip the entire drink, but that's the way its supposed to be, right? ;-) I enjoyed it so much, that I went back the next day and had another, albeit toned down a bit on the spice and quicker to drink. They will make it to your spice tolerance, so go for it! If you aren't that brave try one of their other concoctions like the basil infused rum w/ grapefruit juice, or the classic mojito. all of their ingredients are fresh as fresh can be. Good thing I don't live closer, else I'd be sampling their entire menu! YUM. Oh, and their appetizers are all great too :)

“Free Tasting & Fun Atmosphere!”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

We were quite ready to eat dinner, but we wanted to grab a nice drink and talk abotu the day. The distillery was just across the street from our hotel, so we thought we'd give it a try - whoo hoo! Good decision there.

The staff was friendly and knowledgable and provided everyone with a free sample of their two rums, along with an explanation of how it's made and the complex flavors. They have a big drink menu and the bartenders each have their own favorite bevvy to recommend.

It was a pretty lively crowd and they had a fun, eclectic collection of music playing. Good vibes!

“Get the Bright and Sunny”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

They make their own fresh Ginger beer to go with their home made light rum... best rum drink in town - hands down. They've been having live music lately which has been great! Free popcorn is a nice touch.

“Fun place”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Stopped in two days in a row. Their specialty drinks are to rave about as were the small plates. This is a small Rum distillery that will actually give you a three minute tour if you ask. Very friendly staff and great prices.
