  • Small distillery producing large quality quantities of rum! Knowledgeable staff, tour was small and personable. We found out you can purchase the rum for about a dollar cheaper in the stores BUT...

  • Cruzan Rum Distillery is a must. Our guide was a little ‘off topic’ and went down some rabbit trails unrelated to rum...like filling time, but he was fun and energetic. I enjoy factories of all kinds....  more

  • This place was great! They weren’t in production when we went, so we got $3 off our admission. That includes two cocktails and 4 samples. For $5!!!!! Including the tour! Our tour guide was the daughter of the president of the company, the ones who basically owned the place, so she knew her stuff. It was nice to see where the bourbon barrels go after they leave Jim Beam (the same company owns both). They were cleaning out the vats, so there wasn’t the most pleasant of smells, but that happens... We wound up buying a six pack to take home with us (you can check it as a bag for free back to mainland US). They have some good deals on certain packages but we wanted our own. You need to buy six because if you don’t, it might break on the plane. We paid extra $3 to have them bubble wrapped, but the guy threw in two little bottles so it equaled out anyway. Even without it being in production, we were all so glad we went.
  • I enjoyed the brief tour of how rum is made. Cash was not accepted and there is climbing up stairs and walking. Visitors can relax under a huge tree or in a covered outdoor patio-like setting. At the end of the tour, the guide serves as a bartender and will prepare something using the rum. Underage visitors receive a non-alcoholic beverage. You can purchase Cruzan Rum and other small gift items using a credit card. The clerk will box your purchase. I ended up packing the bottles in my suitcase to transport home.
