Following pickup at select hotel locations in Castries, travel about 7 miles (11 km) out of town to St. Lucia Distillers. Pass banana plantations and appreciate views of Morne Fortune on the way to the distillery, located near Marigot Bay.
Meet your 'Rum Ambassador,' the distillery's specialized guide, for your behind-the-scenes tour of the distillery. Several different brands of rum are manufactured here, including Chairman's Reserve Spiced Rum, 1931 and Admiral Rodney. Learn about the rum-making process, from sugarcane to finished product.
Visit the 'rum buffet,' to taste 17 distinct rums and liqueurs, including Marigot Bay Liqueurs' chocolate orange and coconut flavors. Ask your guide if any additional premium rums are available for tasting; the selection varies by the day. Take this opportunity to purchase any standouts to bring home with you.
Then head to Castries Market, a 100-year-old farmers market, for a chance to purchase spices, fruits, or locally made souvenirs.
After enjoying your tour steeped in the culture, history, and taste of rum, head back to Castries for drop-off at select hotels.
