Upon arrival at the Mount Gay Visitors' Centre, you're greeted by a stunning garden location set against the backdrop of the brilliant Caribbean Sea.

Travel through more than 300 years of rum-making history, gaining knowledge of the centuries of experimentation and perfection that have been passed down through generations. Cap off your tour with a short film that shows just how Mount Gay has come to earn the title of “the rum that invented rum.”

After the tour, head into the tasting room to try samples of 3 different styles of Mount Gay rum. Sip and savor while your guide shares insight into what makes each of these styles unique, as well as how Mount Gay has turned its production process into an art form.
