Possibly the best tour experience in Barbados!

This is a real must for anyone visiting the island who enjoys a drop of rum! I can’t speak highly enough of our tour guide, Ramal. Expertly delivered information on the history of rum production at Mount Gay right up to current processes. A fascinating insight on the maturity process of rum production, all delivered with a natural splash of humour and warmth. The rum tasting session was really educational and included lots of tips on how to enjoy the rum with a variety of different pairings and cocktails. Worth every penny and I will definitely repeat the experience on my return visit to Barbados! Don’t hesitate, book the tour you won’t be disappointed!
Go to Mount Gay Rum Distillery!

Had the most amazing time at the rum distillery. Was very informative and entertaining. Rico (Chico Rico) was amazing and was a pleasure to be in his last tour group! Have recommended it to everyone I have spoken too. Will be coming back again! The Rum was also absolutely amazing. Value for money without a doubt!
All things rum

I cannot start this review without acknowledging the exceptional tour guide Rommel. He was beyond impressive with his knowledge, his jokes and his calm demeanor. The tour itself was quite informative and eye opening with a video to show you the breakdown of how the Rum comes to be and the process the the Master Blender has to go through. The Rum was amazing as its standard customary. I encourage everyone to visit this amazing centre and learn the history of Mount Gay Rum!!!
Great host and good fun

The rum tasting and the history behind how each rum was stored/matured.
Well worth the visit. I would recommend this to my friends.
