Price is extremely fair at only $15.00, staff is friendly, and the rum tasting is second to none. A great change of pace from the quarter.

The distillery is very close to the French Market where the bus picks you up. The distillery itself is in a small warehouse so it is a short walking tour.

Hi Stacy, Yes, an 18 year old is welcome to join in on the tour. Of course they will not be able to join in on the welcome cocktail or tasting at the end, but they can do the tour. Sincerely, ONOR
