  • We didn’t book in advance, we just showed up for drinks. There was just a tour starting and we were asked if we want to join. Totally worth it. Interesting facts about rum and the distillery. Nice...

  • This is review of Distillery Tour at top of the island not the Visitor Centre in town which we found confusing before booking. Wonderful tour with an in depth insight into this working factory. Started with a rum punch on arrival. Romal our tour guide was knowledgeable and humorous which made for a fun tour. Interesting to see the focus on sustainability on site. The tour didn’t feel rushed and we enjoyed the tasting session at the end! Noteworthy point is that we could purchase some bottle items on site but the main shop is located at the visitor centre in Bridgetown, not at the Distillery. Also transportation to the Distillery was included from our accommodation.
  • Lovely tour with a quick video about history of Mount Gay, very informative young lady running the tour with a good sense of humour and got to give praise to the v tasty welcome rum punch! The tasting itself was not just delicious but v interesting. Overall great fun!
  • This was not the expected outing when my hotel put on a visit to the mount gay distillery. It feels like a warehouse in the port district however it was better than my expectations. Welcome cocktail A brief history of the company How they make the rum and age it Tasting session (4 samples) Lunch + alcohol free drink The gift shop is also reasonably priced for taking home your favourite rum!
  • This was a pleasant tour, but not at all as the tour itinerary would suggest. This is not the distillery, and as such there is no distillery tour. What you do get is a very knowledgeable lady telling you about the history, taste some samples and then a rum cocktail making session. There are other packages, but beware, this is most definitely not a distillery, that is in the North of the island and if that's what you want to see, make sure you book carefully.
  • This tour gave us a wonderful explanation of the history of Barbados, the birth of the rum industry and a great appreciation for this great liquor. Can't wait to go back and tour the Mount Gay Distillery on the northern end of the island. This is a must see when you're visiting Barbados!
