  • Darnell gave a wonderful tour! He showed us the seed tanks filled with spicy molasses, water, and yeast... smelled so good! Then on to the distilling tanks, barrels, and oak chips. There was even a tanker truck unloading molasses so we all got to taste how sweet and spicy it was right from South America! Last of all, we graduated from rum school after answering Darnellโ€™s pop quiz, and went to the rum tasting area...We all tasted the expensive stuff to the Cruzan flavored rums, and then Darnell mixed us full drinks of his own recipes... yum yum! Great part is you can buy a case of 6 bottles in a case per person and American Airlines adds it to your checked baggage for free!๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป
  • My wife and I loved this distillery tour! Just of 2 of us were guided by the friendliest lady. So much history at this distillery as it was hundreds of years old. At the end you get taste tests and also options to buy the some Rum. I have never seen so much varieties of Rum in my life. This is a must do if you are in St Croix
  • I enjoyed the brief tour of how rum is made. Cash was not accepted and there is climbing up stairs and walking. Visitors can relax under a huge tree or in a covered outdoor patio-like setting. At the end of the tour, the guide serves as a bartender and will prepare something using the rum. Underage visitors receive a non-alcoholic beverage. You can purchase Cruzan Rum and other small gift items using a credit card. The clerk will box your purchase. I ended up packing the bottles in my suitcase to transport home.
  • Fun tour and Abigail was a great guide! The fermentation area smells great.
  • Crucian Rum Factory Tour is always a highlight when friends visit! The tour guides are friendly and knowledgeable.
