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....

Had an enjoyable time here, mostly because of the tour guide Romal. He was enthusiastic and knowledgeable. I don't know how he survives doing more than one tour a day without ending up smashed. You get 5 decent shots with the standard tour, we had 6 as it was someone's birthday. Well worth the time to visit.

Got picked up and taken to the Mount Gay Rum visitor centre for the cocktail tour. Tried lots of different rums, watched a short film then went on to make a cocktail on tables of 4. You have to make enough for everyone to try and you get scored out of ten with goody bags at the end and an... More
