Mount Gay Rum Tour & Visitors Centre

Have you ever heard of the phrase "the rum, that invented rum"? If you haven't, it would be quite fitting to know that such a phrase has a very strong affiliation with The Mount Gay Rum Distillery Tour. A tour that takes visitors and locals back in time to expose the very heart of the closely guarded secret behind Barbados' finest and oldest golden spirit, Mount Gay Rum. A rum that has been around for more than three hundred (300) years and to date, still considered the best rum in the world.




Mount Gay Rum Tour & Visitors Centre is located just off Brandon's Beach in St. Michael. On entrance, visitors are greeted by professional and well-educated tour guides who greet you in the tropical ambience of the Visitors Centre. Amidst the tropical setting, the smell of rum pervades the air and literally excites the senses.


When this tour begins, it takes you into the depths of the history behind the production of Mount Gay Rum. As there are rum shops all over Barbados, the situation is no different at the Mount Gay Rum Tour & Visitors Centre as an bona fide Bajan Rum Shop awaits you. Here is where you get a "taste" of the way this prized Barbadian possession is made by way of handling the actual ingredients that are responsible for making this fine rum.


Speaking of "taste" earlier, the final stop of the Mount Gay Rum Tour affords you the opportunity to actually get a taste of this fine Barbados spirit. Visitors to the Mount Gay Rum Tour & Visitors Centre who would have orignially booked their lunch tours get to partake in a classic Bajan Buffet. No need to wonder what is on the cards by way of drinks, as a cold glass of Bajan rum punch blended with Barbados' own Mount Gay Rum is served up.


Cocktail tours are also available but would need to be booked by reservations only as this is a to (2) hour tour. This exciting tour allows visitors the opportunity to put their skills to the test by way of mixing drinks that are judged for the best Mount Gay drink blend. It is important to note that children are not allowed to come along on this particular tour.


On property, there's a Mount Gay Rum & Souvenir Shop that carries all the signature products and paraphernalia for the Mount Gay brand. Making it an ideal place to stop by and purchase local souvenirs, proudly created by craftsmen and women of Barbados and last but not by any means least, purchase Mount Gay Rum at great prices.
