Try the Dark & Stormy and Key West Storm (Ernerst (Papa) Hemingway's Pilar Blond rum plus Pilar Dark rum & Ginger Beer. Two good drinks. Moscow Mule idea stolen from Dark & Stormy.

We got this tour free with our Conch train ticket but if we had not it would have been worth the entry fee. Our tour guide was actually one of the distillers and he gave a very animated as well as educational tour. At the end we were able to sample both the light and dark rum.

Our run hostess was nice and asked us if we wanted to taste did not have to ask her. Nice store, there was pricing on some items, I didn't check them all but that seemed to be a reviewers issue. Great rum, the light one was very smooth and my favorite one my husband loved the dark one. They are out of Lakeland, locally functional distillery for the immediate area.

The tour was interesting and we learned a lot about the distilling process. It was nice to get a sample of the product before purchase. The difference in taste between light and dark rum was very obvious, but without the tour, I might not have given them both a try.
