Mount Gay Rum Visitors Centre

Mount Gay Rum Visitors Centre Review

On this popular tour, you learn the colorful story behind the world's oldest rum—made in Barbados since 1703. Although the modern distillery is in the far north, in St. Lucy Parish, tour guides at the Visitors Centre here in St. Michael explain the rum-making procedure. Equipment, both historic and modern, is on display, and rows and rows of barrels are stored in this location. The 45-minute tour runs hourly (last tour begins at 3:30 weekdays, 2:30 on Saturday) and concludes with a tasting and an opportunity to buy bottles of rum and gift items—and even have lunch or cocktails, depending on the time of day.
