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!

Visited the Cruzan Rum Factory for the second time. (Different people in group). Darnell was our guide -and bartender and was affable and entertaining. Got to see the rum being emptied into a trough for filtration before going into the tanker. When you want a break from the beach, this is a great way to spend a couple of hours.... More

Short and sweet tour! Our guide was knowledgeable and witty and a talented bartender too! My 13 yr old son was with us ,who obviously couldn't drink, so a virgin punch was concocted by our guide.Would definitely go again!

We went and did the tour during our 6th anniversary vacation in St Croix, and we had a blast. Abby was our tour guide, and she was sweet and funny and had answers to every question we had about rum, the distilling process, and the island in general. Seeing how your liquor is made is kind of a must-do! The... More

This was so much fun, despite the fact that they weren't actually making any rum at the time of our tour. Yashira was our tour guide and she was so nice! She took us through the whole distillery and explained how the rum making process worked. She was incredibly knowledgeable and answered all our questions. After the tour you get... More

We had a tour with Natalia this past week that we enjoyed. Natalia is an awesome tour guide! She even made sure we had water before the tour, as it was a hot day, & took pictures of us after. We enjoyed learning about the island of St Croix, the sugar plantations & the rum factory. Then after the tour... More

Abby was our tour guide-bubbly and upbeat. Fun to be with. She showed us the process to make rum by walking us through the distillery. Then we got to try several rum samples and mixed drinks made with rum. Couldn't beat the cost of $8 each!
