Myself and my girlfriend enjoyed the distillery. Ive worked at bars for the past 12 years so was very interesting to see the process and the distillery. Nothing too exciting but the rum tasting afterwards was nice. Unfortunately I found St.Lucian rum (even the 1931 and forgotten cask) to not be of the greatest taste or quality
Situated south of Castries, near Marigot bay. The tour, including tasting at the end takes about 30 mins. The is a short film, the history of rum making in St Lucia, and a visit around the distillery. Worth a visit - cost US$10/person - worth booking a time.
Came back from the Pitons and we stopped at the distillery.Visiting the distillery it's worth if it's in your way or you stay somewhere near buy.To drive a few hours just to visit ....not so much. We were the only ones there and after we paid a small fee they send us in the room in which on the huge... 更多
My girlfriend and I decided to go to the distillery to do some " tasting ". For $4.00 US, we were presented with a variety of different rum and liqueur and we were allowed to drink to our hearts content. The samples were definitely tasty. It was fun. I'm trying to remember how I was able to walk out of... 更多
Perhaps we shouldn't have been surprised at the unwelcoming reception at the Distillery; their website isn't too easy to navigate and certainly doesn't give off the usual St Lucian welcoming vibe. We'd hired a car (so weren't planning to taste *too* many rums!) but when we arrived at around 12.30pm on Wednesday, we had to wait while the two people... 更多
Arrived in St Lucia last Friday evening with the intention of visiting the distillery on the way back to the airport last Tuesday. Made arrangements with our driver to pick us up early, take us to the distillery and drop us off at the airport in time for our early evening flight. So using the phone number in my guide... 更多
Others have reviewed "...stay away..." and they're right for the greater part. The only reason I'd give it an extra point over 'Terrible' would be if you wanted to stock up on some good value rum, the trip and tasting session is worthwhile. If you want a deeper history knowledge of the process etc. don't bother. My husband echoes what... 更多
Quite a bargain, rum tasting of 17 rums for $4. We did not go on the tour, but it appears that they do the rum tasting almost any time during the day. Great variety in rums. Banana, coconut flavored, coffee flavored, etc. Our tour guide just took us there, no planning; just asked who was interested.
First, be sure you look for the signs. It took a couple of drive bys to find the turn. Call before you do a tour as they do not run regular schedules. I will say we were staying in the area and it was a fun outing; however, I am not sure it would be worth a long drive. The... 更多
