Cayman Spirits Co. Distillery (Grand Cayman)#7 in Best Things To Do in Cayman Islands
Price & Hours
What started in 2008 as a small distillery producing ocean-aged rum has become the 5,000-square-foot Cayman Spirits Co. Distillery. What's unique about this distillery is the way they age their rum: on the ocean floor. In fact, it was the first distillery to do so. These days, in addition to producing rum, the distillery also produces flavored rums, vodka and liqueurs.
Recent visitors highly recommend taking a tour of the facility, and some even recommend leaving by taxi since there are so many spirits to try. Others travelers say the funny tour guide was a great host.
Travelers can book a tour of the George Town distillery, which usually takes about 30 to 40 minutes and includes tastings of Seven Fathoms Rum, Gun Bay Vodka, and Governor's Reserve Rum, along with the seasonal Distiller's Special spirit. The tours cost $15 per person, and the distillery recommends that travelers book their tours in advance of their trip since they tend to fill up quickly. Tours are offered three times a day from Monday to Saturday at 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. For more information, visit the distillery's website.
