A small but very well maintained place. Not a rum person but enjoyed the place. Nice shop as well with good presents to take back home. Lovely hibiscuses with some unusual colors.

The architecture and setup of this place is pretty good. Makes for some good pictures. The rum making process was interesting but mundane. It would have been well worth it if we could actually see it in progress : perhaps around June when the sugarcane...More
