This is the oldest working distillery (rum) in the world. Well worth a stop. A few dollars gets you a tour and a tasting of the different rums, from very strong, to easy drinking.

take a look back in time and see how rum has been made on Tortola for centuries. Doesn't cost much and nothing wrong with tasting rum. Four shots for a dollar makes it inexpensive. Check it out if you have the time.

Need to take the tour as it was interesting and educational. Good rum. Has a gift shop where you can by some of the rum. We always bring some small bottles home.

400 year old distillery and still makes a good rum. Older rums are smooth and the young rums are rough but, you cant beat four shots of 4 different rums for $1.
