    After pickup from your Barbados hotel you will be taken to the Mount Gay Vistor Centre where you will discover the history of Mount Gay on a Tasting Experience. The Tasting will kick off with complimentary rum punch which you can enjoy while your Brand Host takes you through the Legacy Museum. Experience a fascinating glimpse into the illustrious history of Mount Gay Rum and the island of Barbados.    From there, you will view a short film which gives an explanation of the process of how Mount Gay rums are produced. Next, you will be taken to the Tasting Room where you will enjoy an experience of flavour of 3 Mount Gay rums. Your host will walk you through the tasting explaining the differences between each rum that you taste.   After the tasting, the fun continues with a cocktail making session. The mixologists will guide you in crafting your own signature cocktail and there will be competition for who can make the best cocktail! After the session you will be given time to visit the gift shop where you can purchase bottles of rum, gifts or souvenirs. Many of the rums can only be purchased on the island! You can also enjoy finger foods or lunch for purchase at the Live Grill. At around 4:00pm your driver will take you back to your hotel to enjoy the rest of your evening in Barbados!

We enjoyed the tour, education and learning to make cocktails. The bartender was to pick one winning cocktail, but selected two. Not happy about that but I am competitive, but overall this was a fun. They had a delishous meal, but I did not partake so cannot comment on that.

Like for any distillery, we were expecting a strict allowance of alcohol during the tour... How wrong we were! From the very start you get to buy cocktails at a discounted price. Then entering the first room, you get a rum punch... Then comes the rum tasting... The tour guide
