Took a quick tour of the house.. interesting items in there! Then we were given history on the rum and samples of course. Bought a beautiful bottle of rum for a gift and they hand engraved a message for us. Beautiful property!

We did this by ourselves and enjoyed. yet still got a wonderful tour with history and talked to the workers, which was way more interesting with the one on one. The testing was excellent. The house and gardens are wonderful.
