Owner description: The Cruzan Rum Distillery welcomes you to come visit our "Don't Hurry" atmosphere. Learn how to create delicious cocktails and relax island style! The Visitors' Pavilion houses the Gift Shop & Rum Boutique, in addition to our tasting bar. This guided walking tour takes you on the aromatic journey of turning molasses into rum at the only still functioning historic distillery site in the Virgin Islands. This is an outdoor walking tour that requires climbing stairs and possible uneven walking surfaces. We try to run our tours in either rain or shine, so be prepared for the weather conditions of the day. No matter the weather conditions, guests of legal drinking age will be rewarded with 2 sample cocktails at the conclusion of the tour. Low Season (May - October) hours are 9 - 5 pm, Monday to Friday, and 10 - 2 pm on Saturdays. We are open on Sundays, 10 - 2 pm, when a cruise ship is in port. During High Season we open every Sunday. Tours leave every 30 minutes from the top of the hour. The last tour departs an hour before closing. Cash is not accepted, so please bring your Visa, Mastercard, or Discover Card. Do hurry to the Don't Hurry!

This was definitely one of the highlights of our trip. The Cruzan staff is very friendly and certainly bring lots of enthusiasm to the job. After the tour you'll have the opportunity to sample many of their rums, as well as mixed drinks. They will give you as many samples as you want. We also had the opportunity to sample some concoctions the staff had created on the day of our visit.

If you like the flavored rums, especially the Vanilla, definitely stock up at the store.

What a great way to kick off our vacation in St. Croix! Darnell gave us a great informative tour and mixed amazing cocktails. Plan enough time for leisurely drinks and chatting with the friendly staff. We went home with several recipes and souvenirs. We are now loyal customers!

My wife and I enjoyed the well guided tour through the distillery with a welcoming and knowledgable tour guide. The visit was highlighted by the fun and generous bar tenders at the post tour hospitality bar. Purchased a few bottles to take home at great prices.

I have been to a great deal of distillery's and this one tops the list. The place is assisted because it is on beautiful St. Croix, but the property is beautifully maintained and the tasting room is very tastefully done. Tour guides were well-informed, gregarious and interested in the experience of their guests. I would highly recommend a tour here whether rum is your poison or not, although they do make top notch rums.

We were fortunate enough to be the only two people on the tour, and our guide was fantastic! She was super informative and she poured us a drink she designed herself that was delicious! We bought 2 six packs and we've been drinking Cruzan rum like crazy ever since! LOL!
