Note -- everyone tells you rum is more expensive at the airport. I only checked the prices of two rums. They were NOT more expensive at the airport. So, you can... More

I had no idea there were so many different types of rum. We had the option to try about 18-20 different flavours. Very cool place!

Very small exhibit with neat models but not much for explanation. Liked the old library style of the rum on the store shelves with a moving ladder. Good spot to buy rum and other liquor but don't expect to spend much time there.

Maybe it was the big barrels and all that wood. I loved being there. And oh yes there is free sampling.... More
