Very quick and very interesting rum distillery tour! It lasted about 15 minutes and was free and came with free rum tasting! I bought a bottle of the green coconut 🥥 rum to take home as a souvenir and it’s delicious!

Stopped by to get a taster and fell in love with the rums. Super flavorful and great friendly service. Cool gifts also. If you like rum you will love these.
