“great tour , great price”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

The distillery looks a little scary on the outside, but once you enter you get a nice change . The girls inside are very pleasant and you are greeted with a Cajun tea . Bob was very friendly and very informative , he knew everything there was to know about the rum !!! After the tour you get to try all four of there rums and their gingerroo, omg the gingerroo was amazing ! The ten year rum was incredibly smooth, a little pricey for me at $50 a bottle. I guess if your a rum drinker it would be well worth it and only $10 for a tour , a drink , and 5 samples .

“A pleasant surprise”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

From the outside, the distillery looks a little shaky - neighborhood included. You're in for a pleasant surprise once you get through the front door. Very nice lobby/shop/tasting room. Pleasant & knowledgeable staff plus a very interesting tour of the distillery & bottling operation.

“Fun way to spend an hour!”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

We were picked up by the Organic Banana in the French Market and whisked away for an hour long tour. For $10 it included the transportation, a cold drink upon arrival (it was a spiced ice tea cocktail and was very good) and then four samplings of their rum after the tour. Our guide was informative , pleasant, and entertaining! Very small distillery owned by a local artist. My husband loves his rum and rated it high, so we purchased some rum and gingeroo to take home. We enjoyed the tour.

“Fun afternoon tour”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

We took the tour on our first afternoon in New Orleans. Overall it was a good tour...we had a deal off Groupon, which helped push the rating up. Bob, our driver and host, was very friendly and informative. Lots of details on the process and still in general. The taste sampling should have been chilled in my opinion...but thats just because warm rum is always tough to get down.
