The Cruzan Rum Distillery welcomes you to come visit our "Don't Hurry" atmosphere. Learn how to create delicious cocktails and relax island style! The Visitors' Pavilion houses the Gift Shop & Rum Boutique, in addition to our tasting bar. This guided walking tour takes you on the aromatic journey of turning molasses into rum at the only still functioning historic distillery site in the Virgin Islands. This is an outdoor walking tour that requires climbing stairs and possible uneven walking surfaces. We try to run our tours in either rain or shine, so be prepared for the weather conditions of the day. No matter the weather conditions, guests of legal drinking age will be rewarded with 2 sample cocktails at the conclusion of the tour. Low Season (May - October) hours are 9 - 5 pm, Monday to Friday, and 10 - 2 pm on Saturdays. We are open on Sundays, 10 - 2 pm, when a cruise ship is in port. During High Season we open every Sunday. Tours leave every 30 minutes from the top of the hour. The last tour departs an hour before closing. Cash is not accepted, so please bring your Visa, Mastercard, or Discover Card. Do hurry to the Don't Hurry!

Abigail and Derrick (spelled Darnelle) were very knowledgeable and humorous. It was a dry tour for us, but even still, it was very cool to learn a little about St. Croix's history. Watch out for the cherry though!

Here is an opportunity to learn the history of the area and the process involved in making Cruzan Rum. The tour itself takes about 30 minutes and includes two drinks and two samples at the end. Worth checking out if you're in the area.

The taxis there vary wildly on prices. If you can,get a group together to go. If you go as a group,the fare will be substantially lower.
