A terrific behind the scenes look at the making of the spirit of Jamaica from an incredibly generous host. You get to see the industrial process and sample the product, and the gift shop is reasonably priced.

Reasonably expensive but beautiful location and elegant interiors. The tasting of the ingredients along the stages of being processed and 3 types of rum at the end was entertaining. Obviously not suitable for children, which was great.

Great place to learn about the history behind how they make their rum. They do very good job keeping everyone engaged in the storytelling. I would recommend to anyone.

Starts and ends with rum tasting, sandwiching help yourself rum punch throughout. The tour takes you through the old and modern methods of production, allowing you to sample the product at each stage in the process. Informative and fun.
