This was an awesome tour and the rum is out of this world! Bob was a fantastic shuttle driver, historian, tour guide, and bartender! The time and science that goes into their rum making process is incredible and definitely worth learning about. You walk away with a greater understanding and appreciation of rum making in general and their process specifically. Getting to sample the unique rums was fantastic! We appreciated the complementary shuttle from the French Market as we did not rent a car while in town and that also enabled both my husband and I to sample. The only hard decision to make is how much to bring home with you and how do we get our local stores to carry it.
Our guide Bob was very knowledgeable and answered all of the group's questions. The trivia game was fun although some of the rum had a bit to it. We loved the Tri-centennial and Cajun spice rum and came home with bottles of each. Definitely worth the price.
The distillery tour was great. Bob was both knowledgeable and entertaining. We really appreciated the crowd participation. My boyfriend even purchased several of the runs that were tasted. I’d recommend this tour to family/friends coming to NO. Great experience!!!
Bob was extremely knowledgeable and funny. The story was great and the explanation for how the product is created was wonderful. The taste testing and games were an added bonus.
The tour was very informative and interesting. Tour guide was fun. The tasting at the end was very enjoyable!
Great tour. Great tour guide. Plenty to learn, taste and drink! And a great product you guys produce! Thankyou very much!!
Such a gem! As a former resident and frequent visitor of New Orleans, I never knew it existed. Educational, fun tour - only 45 minutes, with rum tasting at the end. Love my bottle of Gris Gris too. Thank you!
The tour overall was very informative and entertaining. I did not know much about the process of making rum so I was able to learn a lot. The added bonus of tasting the rum made it even better. The cost was very reasonable, so id definitely recommend for people looking for things to do while visiting NOLA.
It was a very good tour. The tastings were great! The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. I loved the dogs! Rum is amazing!
This was a great time. Welcome cocktail was delicious and the tasting was a great way to find your favorite. The tour was interesting and informative. It was a wonderful experience and when we come back with our son we will visit again.
Informative tour, friendly guide (Martin) and very generous with the tastings. Even on a hangover I had a fantastic time. Thank you!
The tour was informative and very interesting!
Entertaining, interesting, educational. Too bad the blend rum deliciousness is $85/bottle.
The tour was very informative and I had a really great time. The samples were delicious and we got a lot for a $15$ tour. The shuttle was very convenient! I would recommend this tour to anyone I know coming to New Orleans
Great product in a super cool location. The guide was engaging and the tour was well suited for the NOLA party crowd.
Was fun. Good rum. Bob was great
Great tour, our tour guild was amazing super knowledgeable and friendly.
The reservation process was very easy and was completed online. The fee is very reasonable and included a comprehensive tour of the facility, interesting information about the rum distilling process and the history of the distillery, a very nice shop, a complimentary homemade cocktail, and an entertaining drinking game where contestants can taste some of the products of the distillery, but not too much of it. Bob, our tour guide, was very informative and very pleasant. Guests can purchase the products in the shop or have them delivered to wherever they choose. Overall, it was a very enjoyable experience off the beaten path in New Orleans.
Very fun and informal tour. Bob was great and we learned a lot!
It was a fun, informal tour that taught us a lot, and Bob was very open to our questions and was a very informative and funny guide! Definitely helped that it was probably the best rum I've ever had too, A+++
Bob, our tour guide, made our experience super fun! We learned a lot about the rum-making process and had fun while doing it. Definitely recommend this if you're ever in New Orleans! It was definitely very memorable and the staff were all so friendly and fun to talk to.
Excellent tour given by a knowledgeable and entertaining guide. The history was interesting and the rum delicious.
A very clear explanation of the rum production was given. Bob was a very interesting and humorous tour guide. We bought a bottle of their best rum, 20th anniversary blend, for 85 bucks plus tax, which was a really worthy purchase. Will definitely recommend this place to my friends.
Our guide, Bob, spelled the same, frontwards and backwards!! Also, the sweet gal at the checkout. She changed our tour time and helped us. We enjoyed Bob's information beforehand, the cocktails, the art in the first rooms, Bob's expertise on the tour and the tastings. Will highly recommend, as this was the BEST tour we've experienced.
