Discover famous Mount Gay Rum Distillery and taste of the original Barbados rum recipe. Enjoy the gorgeous ocean sights at Copacabana Beach. A great combination of rum tasting and a fun Barbados Carlisle Bay beach break cruise shore excursion in Barbados!

Your Barbados shore excursion driver will be waiting for you just outside your Barbados cruise ship terminal and help you board the air conditioned transportation. The licensed guide will tell you all about the island, its history and what to expect for your day as well as pointing out the sights of beautiful Barbados.

The first stop is Mount Gay Visitor Center, a famous Caribbean rum distillery existing since 1703. It is the oldest rum distillery that is still working. The distillery is just a short 5-minute ride away from the cruise pier, but when you enter to the facilities, you are transported back in time. The exhibit rooms hold the tools once used in the production of rum, from the sugarcane harvest to the stills and barrels full of different blends of rum.

You will have a walking tour and hear the explanation of the rum distilling process. You will be sampling the different blends of Mount Gay - Silver, Eclipse, Black Barrel, Extra Old and 1703. Each one has a unique aroma, taste, and body. You will also learn how to prepare great cocktails with each type of rum from the pro bartenders on site. When you leave the Mount Gay distillery, you will be a Caribbean rum expert!

Following your visit to the distillery, your shore excursion guide will take you to nearby Carlisle Bay, you will enjoy a beach break on the beautiful Copacabana Beach. Copacabana is the newest and more popular beach on the bay. Upon arrival, you will be greeted with a complimentary welcome drink. You will have full access to their facilities; beach chairs and umbrellas are available with your consumption of food or drinks. Lunch choices range from $10.00 to $15.00USD and the restaurant offers standard fare of sandwiches, burgers, fish, etc. This gorgeous white sandy beach is an excellent place to relax, have fun or swim.

When time is completed at Copacabana Beach, your Barbados Mount Gay Rum Tasting and Carlisle Bay Beach Excursion guide will take you back to your Barbados cruise ship terminal.

Please note that this excursion is only available for cruise ship guests.

Fun time exploring, learning and beach time!
     5/5 Visited in January 2018

Our guide Nicholas was really fun to be around with. He is a native who truly enjoys educating tourists about his country. I liked how this was slow paced and educational. We also learned a fun fact, Westbury Road (in front of visitor center) was renamed after Rihanna! Our guide gave us this and other fun facts. The rum was truly exquisite, and I personally prefered the handcrafted Silver rum for it's citrusy flavor. The last stop was at the beach club where we enjoyed a few hours to relax and order food. We all decided on the wraps. Delicious! It was a great way to spend our port time in Barbados.

i booked this excursion for our family because my husband's favorite rum is Mount Gay, since I know him he has always drink that. It was so much fun we even learnt how to prepare rum punches.
