  • We came and we had some really great rum. Our bartender was very knowledgeable and informative and helped us find a few that weren't available in the states. We had a nice little visit and really considered eating here but we we're a bit between lunch and dinner...I hear the food is quite tasty. I enjoyed looking at the museum with all the old bottles and such. A must visit if you're in the area.
  • Good Rhum, but you don't see any installation to the fabrication of rhum.
  • Great value, interesting fun tour and extremely clean enjoyable establishment!
  • 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.
  • 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.
