We stopped for a tour which is free. Smelled great (to me) when we walked in. Went into the bar area for the samples. All were wonderful. They even created cocktail samples with their different rums, which were delicious. Really loved their toasted coconut rum....More

We went on a rainy Saturday and the place was packed. There were even lines to try the samples . The tour and samples are free . Tour leaders were very informative and enthusiastic. Fun activity for locals and visitors.

It’s a very good tasty rum! Very hard to see or hear the discussion on their history. I would suggest chair seating and a microphone.

We found the name as Siesta Key Rum not Drum Circle Distilling. One of the best rum distilleries around. Their spiced rum has won all kinds of awards even from the Caribbean!! Now that's impressive. The tour guides and staff were very friendly and knowledgeable....More

We were looking for something fun to do without a lot of expense and this fit the bill. The staff was fabulous! The tour was interesting and funny and educational! Worth the effort to find the place (not centrally located).

I would put this out there as the finest distillery tour and tasting room in the USA. In addition, their spirits, rum, spiced rum, vodka, and bourbon (yes bourbon outside of Kentucky!) are superb! The spirits are handcrafted in small batches using locally sourced ingredients...More
