|About these ratings|
Most Virgin Islands vacationers love the chance to sample Cruzan Rum on its island of origin, and you should do the same at Frederiksted's rum distillery. Tour guides at the rum headquarters will teach you about the distilling and bottling processes. Most visitors note that while informative, the experience is quick. When the tour is complete, guides will mix you up a sample of some of the best cocktails. Favorites include the "Cruzan Sunset," the "Rum Cream" and the "Rush Hour." One TripAdvisor reviewer who has experienced the end-of-tour treat advises: "The tasting afterward was great, but make sure you go with a full stomach because I ended up a little drunk! You can buy bottles in a box and check it at the airport for free, so it makes a great souvenir to take home!"
The Cruzan Rum Distillery is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tours cost $5, and the distillery only accepts payment on credit or debit cards. Visit the company's website for more information.
