Beautiful location. Simon was very welcoming and their rum is fantastic! We ended up buying a bottle of the 12 year to bring home, and it is probably the best rum I have ever had.
Everyone was very welcoming and the tour was educational. Simon has a lot of one liners and added some fun to the end of the tour. Pleasant historical excursion to see a bit of the past.
You're on the islands known for its rum production. Take the time and run north to the Abbey what Simon and his dad are doing is out of this world. Where else can you go learn about a distillery that has been in operation since the 1600s? Where else can you go sample rum from the barrel? Take the time to spend some time out there and enjoy what the kitchen has to offer as of course the amazing rums that they produce there.
A good guided tour and rum tasting in a historic place. Entry is 23 USD a person and can not visit the gift shop without paying for the whole tour.
Nice plantation house museum and rum distillery. Nice tour, staff and owner's are super friendly. They will teach you about the history of the distillery and what makes the rum special there. You will also be able to see how it is made. Place is well maintained.
