The Cruzan Rum Distillery welcomes you to come visit our "Don't...

The Cruzan Rum Distillery welcomes you to come visit our "Don't Hurry" atmosphere. Learn how to create delicious cocktails and relax island style! The Visitors' Pavilion houses the Gift Shop & Rum Boutique, in addition to our tasting bar. This guided walking tour takes you on the aromatic journey of turning molasses into rum at the only still functioning historic distillery site in the Virgin Islands.

This is an outdoor walking tour that requires climbing stairs and possible uneven walking surfaces. We try to run our tours in either rain or shine, so be prepared for the weather conditions of the day. No matter the weather conditions, guests of legal drinking age will be rewarded with 2 sample cocktails at the conclusion of the tour.

Low Season (May - October) hours are 9 - 5 pm, Monday to Friday, and 10 - 2 pm on Saturdays. We are open on Sundays, 10 - 2 pm, when a cruise ship is in port. During High Season we open every Sunday. Tours leave every 30 minutes from the top of the hour. The last tour departs an hour before closing. Cash is not accepted, so please bring your Visa, Mastercard, or Discover Card.

Do hurry to the Don't Hurry!

When we arrived we were told at the visitors center that they were not producing rum at the time but we could still go on a abbreviated tour showing the steps involved producing rum. We decided to go with a young couple that just arrived so the tour guide took the four of us. As rum wasn't in production the... More

We were on St. Croix for the day so we had to visit Cruzan. The tour was $8 and it was very informative. We toured the facility and then relaxed while sampling two very strong rum drinks. Both were very good. Great way to spend an hour or so.

We decided to come here on our honeymoon, and we are so glad we did! Our tour was only $7 due to not fermenting at the time we were there. At the end of the tour you get two samples and two mixed drinks of your choice! Highly recommend the Blue Parrot and the Rock Lobster. Our guide was great... More
