This 400 year old distillery is a quick stop, but worth the trip. They have four different ages of their pure cane Rum ranging from moonshine - right out of the still - to a sweet sipping oak aged Rum. Their 5-year and 10-year oak...More

Stop in and step back in time. Sip some rum being made on premises. The team is courteous and fun and for a few dollars you can taste some interesting libations. Ladies, hold onto your briefs
