Overview

The Cruzan Rum Distillery welcomes you to come visit our "Don't Hurry" atmosphere. Learn how to create delicious cocktails and relax island style! The Visitors' Pavilion houses the Gift Shop & Rum Boutique, in addition to our tasting bar. This guided walking tour takes you on the aromatic journey of turning molasses into rum at the only still functioning historic distillery site in the Virgin Islands. This is an outdoor walking tour that requires climbing stairs and possible uneven walking surfaces. We try to run our tours in either rain or shine, so be prepared for the weather conditions of the day. No matter the weather conditions, guests of legal drinking age will be rewarded with 2 sample cocktails at the conclusion of the tour. Low Season (May - October) hours are 9 - 5 pm, Monday to Friday, and 10 - 2 pm on Saturdays. We are open on Sundays, 10 - 2 pm, when a cruise ship is in port. During High Season we open every Sunday. Tours leave every 30 minutes from the top of the hour. The last tour departs an hour before closing. Cash is not accepted, so please bring your Visa, Mastercard, or Discover Card. Do hurry to the Don't Hurry!

While I really like Captain Morgan's rum, the tour of thios facility was actually more enjoyable. The atmosphere was more personal and we'd recommend it over Captain Morgans.

Darnel and the crew at Cruzan gave a wonderful education on Rum production and the Island. One of the most fun distillery tours I have ever taken. A must visit on the Island

Well worth it, especially if you like rum or rum drinks. And a very surprising single barrel 12 yr old rum that tastes surprisingly like bourbon for the whiskey drinkers (I happen to like both, so it made my day). The tastings after the tour...More

Unfortunately taxis in general on the island are hit or miss and next to impossible to get once the sun goes down.
