On this tour you really get up close to the processing and distillery. Not like production tours where you are behind glass or in a museum room. This is the actual deal built back in the 1800's. The tour takes about 30-45 minutes. We combined...More

Called in on a island tour. This is a wonderful distillery locked in time. A original water wheel powers the mill for grinding the sugar cane, and all vats, stills etc are old and original. Locally sourced wood is used to heats the stills. Health...More

I'm not sure what everyone else saw, but this place might have put me off drinking rum for life. The containers for the rum were disgusting with cracked concrete and peeling paint. There were spiderwebs in the empty ones. It smelled nasty and the large...More

Loved this tour of a working heritage site with a water mill made in Derby UK circa 1840 to power crushing the sugar cane. We (2 adults and 1 child) were lucky to find 'Lollypop' taxi driver who took us on an Island tour including...More

Since 1765 ish the French originally made rum or rhum at St Antoine Rivers estate factory. We self drove to the factory- allow about average speed of 30 mph in a hire car across the island is a good rule of thumb allowing for local...More

Like most tours of factories we have had, the tour at River Antoine is quite short. It's worth calling ahead to check whether the wheel is working as it seems to be quite temperamental, but it is quite a sight when it's going. The place...More
