“Fantastic rum!”
Reviewed 17 February 2014

So glad we stumbled upon this place! We learnt so much about rum and the way it's made, and as an extra bonus we got to try the new Key Lime rum which I believe is going to be available for sale soon (so look out for it!). Rum is my favourite drink so this had a lot to live up to but the rum was so nice and smooth, I only wish we could take more of it back to the UK!!

“Harsh.”
Reviewed 3 February 2014

As a rum drinker, I was very much looking forward to the opening of this distillery. Great idea, but they have a lot of work to do with regard to quality. I tasted all of the Rums and was surprised at how harsh the taste was. Rough at best.

“Great place, great rum!”
Reviewed 20 January 2014 via mobile

We were a group of ten and decided to do the after hours private tour and tastings. From the phone call to schedule the tour to the actual tour and tasting Paul and Doc were great! Very welcoming for a big fun group, we even got to put together our own group bottle. We also tasted some pretty special rums that we can't wait for them to start selling so we can be the first in line to buy. Everyone had a great time, highly recommended for groups.

“Delicious Rum”
Reviewed 10 January 2014

Just ran into this place only a few days after it opened, and glad we found it! Rum tastings available, and friendly folks there. The owner was so nice and enjoyed talking to us. Very interesting stories and can't wait to go back. Hope the Rum reaches our liquor stores soon.
