We did the Toppers Tour 2 weeks ago in a small group of 4 and had a great time! You’ll try a large quantity of incredible tasting rum and won’t be able to leave without buying a bottle or 2.. Or 3 or 4! Great way to spend an afternoon! The gelato is also amazing!

This is a MUST DO TOUR! Our tour group was small, so we had lots of time to taste as many rums as we wanted. The tour was very informative. Our guide, the Canadian Princess (cant remember her name) was outstanding. She shared so much information as well as a couple of toasts.

This was a great tour! You get to sample many different flavors of rum, including several exclusively "only made once" flavors. Tour was about 90 minutes, so easy to do in the morning or afternoon. Fantastic local restaurant half a block away called Pisis that is a great stop
