  • We enjoyed our visit to the distillery, friendly staff and great products. We bout 4 various bottles of rum and all great.  more »
  • The tour is basic, but then, this is a unique distillery in an interesting location. Unlike some of the others, they make the alcohol on premises, age and flavor it here as well. The actual spirits pr...  more »
  • Let’s start with the obvious; it’s a 15 minute rum tour and not a rollercoaster ride. Your expectations should match that. It’s a small, local distillery. If you want to try some local rum and learn m...  more »

  • The experience was between meh and disappointing. Rums were on the harsh side overall with some flavors better than others. I really wanted to pick up a couple bottles of aged rum or spiced but couldn't bring myself to do it. Just not enjoyable enough to sip. As for the tasting, staff was friendly and helpful. However, I was asked to grab tasting glasses off the shelf. That's great until they package them for you at $10 each after you finish the tasting. I'm happy to pay a tasting fee. This just felt...sleazy.
  • Well worth the stop if you're a rum drinker. There is a tasting station in the store area and also tours of the distillery at scheduled times which were Monday - Saturday 1:00pm and 3:00pm & 4:00pm Happy Hour Tour when we visited in mid-December. You can also stroll through the distillery 'self guided' during work hours. It was interesting to learn some basic rum making history and how their rum making process is different than the big commercial producers.
  • Excellent tasting experience, our bartender Laurie was a ton of fun and treated us like locals. The rum kept flowing and so did the fun! The shot glass for all the tastings is probably the best deal out of all the distilleries down here. Can't recommend it enough!
  • Great little place. We were walking around and just happened upon a little blackboard sign. Walking in, we were able to read history and stuff about rum running. The bartender, Jenna, was super nice and knowledgeable. She recommended her favorite rum and different ways to drink the rum. It was a great way to spend an hour or so.
  • I live in Key West and shop here. I love to stop in to see what is new and it has come a great place to pick up house gifts. Besides rum, they have a great selection of rum cakes and chocolates. The staff is always friendly and happy to see you. They make you feel comfortable, especially if you are a novice to the rum world. The tours are I for,active and the monitor classes are fun as well. More importantly, the owner, Paul, is a true local entrepreneur. He employs locally and distill right in this location. The food items are also made right here in Key West. I don't feel like I am getting hosed by another business that throws "Key West" on their sign, and you find out nothing is produced in their business Make sure to stop by for a tour and tasting, or to pick up a high quality bottle of rum A+++++++++

Where to stay in Key West

To explore the best of what Key West has to offer on foot, stay near Old Town, a picturesque neighborhood famous for its streets lined with tropical trees and gardens. Most hotels in this area feature rooftop decks, where you can meet friends for cocktails and enjoy ocean views at sunset. If you don't mind driving to where most of the action is, consider staying at a budget-priced inn or bed and breakfast on the eastern end of the island.
