“well off the beaten path”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

The Old New Orleans Rum Distillery is a fun tour. Even if you aren't a rum aficionado it is a worthwhile visit. The rum is most excellent, and seeing the artisanal processes by which it is made makes it even better. You can order rum shipped to most states, so it's not a worry if you're flying. I would most strongly recommend going during the week when the distillery runs transportation from French Market. On a Saturday our taxi had difficulty fining the distillery, which is not in a good neighborhood. It appears that it would be possible to get nearby on the bus, but I don't think that is a good idea.

“MUST DO 21+”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

One of the most fun, yet educational tours I have been on! Definitely a MUST SEE/ MUST DO while in New Orleans! Old New Orleans Cajun Spice is one of my favorite rums so when I found out there were tours of the distillery I had to go. The tour is a reasonable price and they offer a shuttle service to and from your hotel because it is a little off the beaten path.

“Delicious Rum, Interesting Tour”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

It was a great tour for the afternoon. It was only $10 and everything we had was delicious. Not to mention picking us up from the bar across from our hotel was convenient. If your schedule looks like it needs a break from the history or a break from the bars this is the perfect solution.

“A must for your trip”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

This van showed up on time, the tour was educational, the samples of rum were interesting and different. This group does a great tour. Make sure you book the free shuttle van as it is too far to walk.
