It's all too common to make a visit only to be fed a pre-packaged, sanitised experience. This place is the real deal, and should be on everyone's must see list.

It’s not an overtly touristic place as it is a working distillery. We almost drove past it because we couldn’t see an entrance (a ramp leads up and to the back). The young guy that works in the factory shop took us on a free...More
We had a really pleasant visit to this distillery with the rum tasting in the end. The rum was super delicious, probably the best we tried on the island. During the tour we saw the oldschool steam machines (oldest working in Caribbean) and also tried...More
