Being a rum aficionado, I very much wanted to visit here and was not disappointed. Although the distillery is actually in the north of the Island, all the bottling, packaging and distribution is done here and the tour involves plenty of information and tasting before having an excellent lunch paired with several Mount Gay rum styles. There is also a... More

Our tour included a free pick up and delivery from our hotel and lunch. The driver called ahead to be sure we were ready and hit us there promotky. Once inside, things seemed a bit disorganized. The reception area is in the middle of the gift shop area. Once we were checked in, we were told to wait in the... More

The visit starts of with a tour, which itself starts with a Rum Punch. Then you get a short video on the history after which you go to the tasting room where you get to sample some of the Mount Gay products, you see where this is going. The on to the bottling plant and finally to lunch where you... More

Mount Gay makes some of the finest rum in the Caribbean, just ask anyone who knows. If you're into wine and spirits this tasting is for you (mind you that is what it is). If you're more of the "tour" type and are more into settings and ambience this might not be your place, the visitors center and distillery are... More

We arrived here at 3pm only to be told that despite our guide book and a sign outside saying last tour 3.30PM the last tour is in fact at 2.30PM, so beware! We returned the next day and paid for a "tour" of the distillery - note we also paid, I think US$20 each for our two teenagers as well.... More

What a fantastic and well Informative tour. The Rum flowed. Would have liked to sample (buy) the limited 50th Independence bottle. Alas it wasn't available to sample. But Then I had to buy the whole bottle $185 ouch....
