We visited the Mount Gay visitor centre as part of a day tour we did through St James Travel & Tours Barbados. The Bajen gentleman who gave us a talk on the history of Mount Gay very enthusiastic & definitely represented the company. After we had a very insightful experience tasting the various rums.

Great visit and accompanying overview of how the rum originated and is made today. Tasted 4 rums and Rhea was an informative and knowledgeable guide who made us feel very welcome. Not being able to book on the longer tour we opted to do the one hour session and used a local taxi to transport us.

My fiance and I had a great time tasting Rum at Mount Gay. We were greeted with complimentary rum punches in a patio area with mist machines to help keep us cool. The tour was great. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and funny. She noticed my fiance could handle his rum so she poured him more during our tasting which he appreciated. We tasted 4 different rums and enjoyed our experience. The rooms for the tour were cool with air conditioning. I would recommend this tasting tour!

Ok, so I like rum and might be biased, but the tour was great! The tour of Mount Gay was, even to me a rum drinker, informative about their brand, their rum was very tasty, and the tour guide was funny, amusing and had some pretty good drink ideas. I would highly recommend this tour even if you are going to visit other rum factories! The distillery has a bar for great mixed rum drinks before and of course, after the tour. And yes, I did buy a souvenir sized liter bottle of the rum shown in the picture above! I love to buy such kinds of souvenirs to take home and share!

What a fun and informative experience! After listening to a short history of the origins of Mount Gay rum, we were treated to a tasting of four different rums from the Mount Gay line. Our guide showed us how to enhance the tasting experience and to discern the various notes of each of the rums we tried. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone visiting Barbados!

Well worth the price.

Our guide (Tina) had the entirety of the tour group chatting and laughing together within minutes of meeting us.

Was extremely impressed with her knowledge of the product and how to read the room and engage with that.

The welcome rum punch and subsequent tasting drinks had us happily on our way home for a nap.

We had a few days to spare in Barbados so decided to slot in a rum tour, and we weren't disappointed! We used the discount to get some pre-tour cocktails, then had an excellent tour by a lady who I unfortunately can't remember the name of. She made the tour informative, and added plenty of humour throughout.

Highly recommended!

We went to Mount Gay on Valentine's day and had the most amazing time. We arrived a little before the tour started to grab a drink at the bar - they had Valentine's drink specials and the bartenders were awesome and informative when crafting the cocktails (which were delicious). Our tour guide was Tina and she was the best tour guide we could've asked for. She was informative, funny, lively and got our group to engage with each other! I've seen some reviews on here that advise you to eat beforehand so I will stress - EAT BEFOREHAND. You start the tour with a rum punch and during the tasting you will throw back about 4 shots within ~30 minutes. You can ask to skip some of the shots or ask for smaller portions, but I like to get my money's worth so I wasn't going to do that. All in all an awesome experience, and definitely recommend for any trip to Barbados!

We arrived at the entrance and someone handed us each a rum punch. Great start. There is a great deal of history posted on signs on the walls. The tour guide added some more, but her talk was mostly about the distilling process and the differences between rums. One can see the difference while sampling 4 varieties. Takeaway, only the silver should be served with mixers. At the end there was a rum cream to sample as well. If you drive you must sit on the patio and sober up. Or go to the gift shop.
