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.
