Fodor's 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 here explain the rum-making process. Equipment, both historic and modern, is on display, and rows and rows of barrels are stored in this location. Tours conclude with a tasting and an opportunity to buy duty-free rum and gifts—and even have lunch or cocktails (no children on cocktail tour), depending on the time of day.
