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!

What a great morning. My husband and I took the trip over to the distillery for their tour. Nothing short of fantastic. Mark our tour guide was extremely engaging and interactive. We toured the various steps involved with making their rum. This tour involves walking and climbing stairs. We had luck in that the molasses delivery occurred during our visit... More

First off the entry fee gets you more free mixed drinks than the cost of entry! In simple terms to not go and drink somewhere else that day you have wasted your money! The tour guides are fun and the facility has a very long running and interesting history. While you are there they will describe each step of the... More

Great little tour to learn about rum making. Natalia was a great tour guide and bartender. No reservations needed tour runs every half hour. Good shots and rum coctails after the tour. Not bad for $8.00. Glad we stopped by and got some pictures and made more memories for our group of 8.

We went to the rum distillery without calling ahead and luckily a tour was scheduled anyway. We were lucky on our timing. The guide gave us a little information but honestly, we were somewhat bored. We loved the rum tasting afterward and they have a great gift shop with cute T shirts and hats along with very inexpensive rum to... More

We stopped here one morning to see how rum was made. Great tour that really explained the whole process. We actually got to see into the vats and keg storerooms. It really was an up close look at the making of Cruzen Rum. Very friendly staff and guides (shout-out to Jason) who took their time to explain everything and answer... More
