  • If you are looking for an iconic place for an event in Key West look no further. I hosted my wedding weekend's 'welcome party' at the distillery and couldn't be happier with the beautiful + memorable event for my guests. We started with a private tour of the distillery + rum tasting - a perfect mix of Key West + Hemingway history while sipping on delicious freshly made rum cocktails, and an official tasting at the end of the tour. The distillery is a perfect place for mingling, with ample space for guests. There are also options to add in catered food + bartenders + live music, etc. to enhance the event. Also, with the distillery being right around the corner from the historic seaport + Mallory square, there are endless options for exploration or continuing the party after the event. A huge thank you to Tricia and her team for making our wedding weekend so memorable - it was the highlight of the weekend and a perfect Key West memory for our guests.
  • Wish I could give them more than 5 stars! Wanted to do the tour but they were booked for days. Instead we settled for the tasting. Super entertaining! The guys doing the tasting were SO personable! Really made it so much more enjoyable that any tasting I've ever done before. Four of us really enjoyed it and also felt we got some education on rum. Their rum was much better than any I've had before so we purchased quite a bit!
