  • We had a great time at the Old New Orleans Rum Distillery tour during our honeymoon trip to New Orleans! Our tour guide, Bob, was a great combination of being knowledgeable and informative, but also very fun and easygoing. He quizzed us throughout the tour to make sure we were paying attention and wasn't shy with giving out samples of their different products. The rum itself was some of the best liquor I've ever tasted. They had a small, but quite varied selection of different rums in the distillery, from more traditional rums to a spiced rum with cayenne pepper. We went into the tour with no intention to purchase anything, but ended up buying three bottles and a box that we could check on our flight home. We had a wonderful time!
  • I went to this distillery back in March for my Mom's birthday. My mom fainted because she was dehydrated that day. The woman working at the front was so kind and helpful. She offered my mom a warm towel and called an ambulance when she fainted. Although, we did not get to finish the tour, the staff were so kind and helpful to my mother and father. This is a great place and I got to try some of the rum when we first got there. Great taste and great history! I highly recommend.
