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. If you miss the ramp to the 'shop', just turn in through the main gates...More

The Montebello distillery was shown to us by an english speaking employee. Walking freely you can get in direct contact with the production chain. The tour was free. In the shop you can taste and buy their products. Worth the visit!

The salesperson in the gift, rhum shop told us to look for Roger for a tour. Walked around the distillery for half an hour but didn't find anyone. Maybe we were there at the wrong time of year. Looked interesting.
