Great product in a super cool location. The guide was engaging and the tour was well suited for the NOLA party crowd.
Was fun. Good rum. Bob was great
Great tour, our tour guild was amazing super knowledgeable and friendly.
The reservation process was very easy and was completed online. The fee is very reasonable and included a comprehensive tour of the facility, interesting information about the rum distilling process and the history of the distillery, a very nice shop, a complimentary homemade cocktail, and an entertaining drinking game where contestants can taste some of the products of the distillery, but not too much of it. Bob, our tour guide, was very informative and very pleasant. Guests can purchase the products in the shop or have them delivered to wherever they choose. Overall, it was a very enjoyable experience off the beaten path in New Orleans.
Very fun and informal tour. Bob was great and we learned a lot!
It was a fun, informal tour that taught us a lot, and Bob was very open to our questions and was a very informative and funny guide! Definitely helped that it was probably the best rum I've ever had too, A+++
Bob, our tour guide, made our experience super fun! We learned a lot about the rum-making process and had fun while doing it. Definitely recommend this if you're ever in New Orleans! It was definitely very memorable and the staff were all so friendly and fun to talk to.
Excellent tour given by a knowledgeable and entertaining guide. The history was interesting and the rum delicious.
A very clear explanation of the rum production was given. Bob was a very interesting and humorous tour guide. We bought a bottle of their best rum, 20th anniversary blend, for 85 bucks plus tax, which was a really worthy purchase. Will definitely recommend this place to my friends.
Our guide, Bob, spelled the same, frontwards and backwards!! Also, the sweet gal at the checkout. She changed our tour time and helped us. We enjoyed Bob's information beforehand, the cocktails, the art in the first rooms, Bob's expertise on the tour and the tastings. Will highly recommend, as this was the BEST tour we've experienced.

Visited a couple years ago, brought my friends this year and they enjoyed it. The piece of history that the company holds is great i.e. katrina
Very fun and funny tour... Great rum !
Our tour guide Diana was super. She was personable and knowledgeable; we enjoyed hearing about the process and history of rum-making. Also, being able to taste and smell the product at different stages of production was something that we have never been able to do on other tours. And of course we really enjoyed the tastings! Thank you. The rum we bought will be enjoyed back here at home.
Great way to learn more about the city's history and about rum.
