Mount Gay Rum Visitor Center

Exmouth Gap, Brandons, Spring Garden Highway, St. Michael, Barbados

The Basics

Standard tours follow the creation of rum from sugar cane harvest to fermentation, and show how the liquid is carefully bottled for shipment across the globe. You’ll also learn about the distillery’s history, hear tales of rum’s seafaring roots, and watch a film on rum production. Then, sample the smooth rums in the tasting room or at the main bar.

Dive deeper at Mount Gay with a cocktail-making workshop or traditional Bajan lunch, which both offer insight into local culture and how deeply it’s entwined with rum.

A must for all.
This was a great tour. Our guide was knowledgeable and fun. He walked us through the history of the company and the rum tasting g was outstanding. Plan to repeat the tour and stay for lunch in the restaurant. The drinks from the bar were also great and the servers were great.
