You can’t go to Barbados and not take the Mount Gay Rum tour. They do a good job of sharing the history and explaining the different kinds of rum that are produced. What to look for in a rum how it should smell and feel when you drink it, as well as what you can mix it with. I don’t recall the gentlemen’s name that gave the 12:30pm tour on Monday Feb 3rd, but he was so funny and really made it interesting, entertaining and informative. We took the Mount Gay Rum and cave tour, which did not include lunch, I think next time I would take just the Mount Gay Rum tour that also provides lunch and have time to enjoy it more. Something to note, this is not where they make the rum (distillery) that’s another tour they have at another location on special days.

Great introduction and history lesson. The price of the tour was very reasonable and worth every drop.

I have been on this tour twice. The first time in 2017 and this time. The overall experience the first time was fantastic with a tour of the actual distillery, a tasting and a history lesson. The second time however was considerably less interesting. It felt as though they were rushing us through the history and tasting area and DID NOT include the tour of the actual distillery.

Even though I love the brand, I would not recommend this tour. St. Nicolas Abbey’s distillery tour is a lot more in depth and way less touristy.

Sorry Mount Gay.

Mount gay is the propriety brand of rum produced in Barbados. It has a long and rich history of development and is now aided by the marketing capabilities of the Remy brand to export worldwide. This trip and experience is a must for all visitors to Barbados, not just for the generous tastings of the various rum options but also for the entertaining commentary offered by the guide. It is both educational and inspirational and one comes away with a feeling of pride toward the people associated with the drink throughout its history and production. Try it - you'll not be disappointed.

Fun experience, our guide was seemed to enjoy her job so much, we was in a large group and she answered all questions. Very generous pours in the tasting room, plus a nice scenic drive around the island, very good tour.
