We were so impressed with his tour. First off, when our tour guide arrived, he told us that we would be the only ones on the tour. Having done many of these tours in the past, normally that would mean a cancellation. The dedication was definitely there. It was such a great view of the island that was customized to what we wanted to see. Foursquare is incredible. Truly one of the top distilleries on the island. We were very impressed with the educational portion as well as the tasting portion. Who wouldn’t love that? Mount Gay is pretty good. It is a completely different experience from foursquare so be prepared for two different types of tastings. Scott was amazing, one of a kind, and this is one of our top experiences of our vacation

Great Rum Tour

This excursion is a must if you like rum! It was great to get to visit the Four Square facility which included quite a few different tastings. The drive through the countryside to the Mount Gay tasting room was beautiful and the tasting experience was very well done. The highlight, however, was probably the driver, Rooster Man! He was very friendly and provided excellent narration throughout the tour - this was the only tour we were on where the driver took the time to tell us about Barbados! Highly recommended, both for the rum and the experience!

Amazing day on a Rum tour

Rooster was a wonderful driver and guide. Great tours and tastings at Four Square and MT Gay. Plenty of rum. My wife couldn’t climb stairs at MT Gay for production tour and tasting so they did a private lecture and tasting with her in the bar area❤️❤️❤️👍. Such wonderful caring service. Would highly recommend

Interesting and tasty morning out

Such a fun morning out! Four squared distillery was so interesting and told both the old and new ways of making rum. The Mount Gay Visitor Centre was slightly disappointing as a follow on because it was just one room of reading info and then tasting the rums. Luckily the Four Squared made up for it! And would love to go back there to learn more.

Pickup was on time, as instructed in a message sent the previous evening. Our driver, the Rooster Man, was entertaining and shared interesting facts about Barbados and the areas we were travelling through. Excellent visit to Foursquare distillery. Loved the tour and the opportunities to take photos. Tasting was excellent, and each sample well explained. Seven samples in total. Second visit was to Mount Gay Visitor Centre. Cocktail on arrival was one of the best we have had on the island. Our guide was interesting and talked us though the four samples. We then received a further sample at the bar before getting a bus back to the hotel. The visit to Foursquare was the highlight of our day. The distillery had a more friendly and welcoming vibe, and you can tell the distillery is owned locally by a family. We enjoyed Mount Gay Visitor Centre but felt it had a more “corporate feel”. Would definitely recommend to anyone who wants to learn about the rum making process and to try a few rums!

Four square great how we saw rum being made and the smells walking round were delicious. Mount Gay was not as good just different rooms with pictures and lecture .

Brilliant - Foursquare and Mount Gay
Laura_P
, Dec 2021
If your looking to visit Foursquare and Mount Gay this is the tour for you. The tour of Foursquare given by Dario was the most informative and finished with 7 rum tastings (old brigand, spiced rum, R.L. Seale’s, Doorly’s XO, aged 22 & 14 years and Crisma cream liqueur). Mount Gay was much busier, starting in the visitor centre with a rum punch before proceeding to a tasting room to sample 5 rums (silver, eclipse, black barrel, XO and finishing with Ponche Kuba in the bar).

Amazing tour to experience how the rum making process works in every detail. The organisation was just perfect. The driver arrived punctually and we had a nice chat while we were travelling to the two distilleries.

A Quality Rum Lover’s Must
Justin_B

I was a Foursquare Rum afficianado heading into this tour. I had high expectations. This tour did not disappoint. First, our tour guide, Scott, actually went to school with Foursquare Master Distiller, Richard Seale, so there was an immediate connection. Though Foursquare lists on their website they offer free self-guided tours, a Foursquare representative greeted us when we arrived and led us on a tour through the distillery. He was very knowledgeable about the brand and the process. Obviously the rum tasting at the conclusion of the distillery was the best part. Such a great product line. The stop at the loca rum shop was a great insight into Barbadian culture. Pulling into Clifton Hall was like stepping into a post card. So much history sandwiched between architectural and natural beauty (the rum isn’t bad either). That should have concluded our trip, but we had some extra time, so Scott took us to a beautiful overlook of the east side of the island. The view was breathtaking. That also should have concluded the tour, but I’d mentioned to Scott that I wanted to try a good local fish cake. His place was closed. We tried another. Also closed. Checked with another good truck, they said to try the next town over. Scott took us there! Alas, no fish cakes. We thanked him for trying. On the way back to Bridgetown he decided to try one more spot and...victory! It was worth the wait. So good. I can’t recommend this local company enough. The attention to detail, the knowledge and the courtesy shown to us made this one of the best excursions we’ve ever been on. Many thanks!
