  • A nice day out for hubby's birthday, even though I'm not really a drinker, so it was good that Rumal was so enthusiastic with giving facts that I was interested in.  more »

  • A very cool place to visit, when in Barbados, Museum tour is very informative and interesting. I especially love the rum punch and see all the tools and pots used in the past. Very lovely gift shop and bar on the compound as well.
  • Being quite familiar with Mt. Gay, we skipped the video and tour and went straight to the testing. Don't miss out on the Mauby. More importantly, splurge on the 1703 (and it's cheaper to buy the bottle here than at the airport. For eclipse, it's the other way around and you don't have to pack it in your luggage). Friendly, informative staff. Fun experience.
  • We had a wonderful tour guide (Rumal) who made our visit interesting and fun. We learned about the history of rum, which was first distilled on Barbados. A visit here is a must-do if you're spending a few days on the island. Great gift shop too.
  • Very nice visitor centre with wonderful staff! Be sure to visit the really reasonably priced restaurant!
  • Our tour was good fun - got to drink quite a lot of rum
