Nice staff and great spirits (Rum)
LOVE!!!! LOVE!!! LOVE!!!
The tour was "as advertised." The shuttle was prompt (albeit very warm). The rum was excellent and Bob did a really great job explaining process and history. Plus, Bob was very humorous and tried to make the tour a bit personal for all of us.
Jeff was our tour guide and was great. He was incredibly knowledgeable and you could tell he clearly cares about the history of the distillery AND New Orleans.
Fantastic tour! Very informative and Interesting (the Rum helped also)
Tour was interesting and informative. There is a great selection at the gift shop. The tasting and welcome drink were nice.
The tour was very informative, the your guide and staff were readily available to answer questions
It was a very fun and relaxing experience.
This tour was well worth the $15 as they pick you up and drop you off right at the farmers market, which is good as you don't want to drive afterwards. It was very informative and entertaining, and we enjoyed the tasting. You will appreciate all the work that goes into the product.
From pick-up to drop-off the personal interaction was great. My boyfriend loves his rum and he really enjoyed tasting and learning about the process of rum making.
It was very educational. Loved having a taste. Bought 2 bottles.
Our tour was awesome. I learned a lot about rum distilling that I didn't know from my previous rum tours elsewhere. The distillery is really nice, especially the owner's artwork everywhere. The rum itself is the best I've ever had.
It was a new experience for us and we thoroughly enjoyed it.
Jeff our tour guide was excellent. Very informative.
This tour was very laid back and informative. We are from the NOLA area and loved learning about this piece of history. The rum punch was wonderful!
The driver of the shuttle and all the staff at the distillery were very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. The tour was very interesting, and the samples were excellent! Definitely suggest this as a place to tour on your trip to NOLA!
Stacey & Keith rocked it!!! Super friendly and knowledgeable. We were picked up at the French market and driven to the distillery, a less than 10 min ride. We start off with a bangin rum cocktail, and then on our way in to the distillery for a tour and the entire distillation process. Great Rum tasting to finish.
The tour and experience was great. Very fun and informative. Will definitely recommend.
2nd time I have been there, love the place. Great people and great spirits!
Scott, our tour guide, was great. He took his time, informative, and showed us around the distillery and the tastings were icing on the cake. I would recommend to anybody who enjoys rum with a bit of history.
I am not a huge run fan, but learning more about the history, and process of making rum definitely made the tour a must-do! Thank you for the insight and the drinks! I will recommend this tour to friends who visit New Orleans, and definitely will buy a bottle of your run if I see it, if only to support your distillery. Thank you for having us!
The tour was very interesting and not too long. The woman who ran it was very cool - funny and knowledgeable, good energy. I learned a lot about whiskey making and the history of how it came to be popular throughout the American birth. I wish I liked rum more, because I would have tried more of the tastings at the end. But what I did try was interesting and flavorful. Also, the fact that they pick you up right in the French Quarter so you don't have to worry about getting yourself to the distillery, that is a huge bonus.
The tour was one of the highlights of my trip. What a great hidden gem of New Orleans!! The complementary shuttle definitely is a plus. The tour was fun and I'll recommend it to friends and family
Enjoyed visiting to see how the rum is made... A bit different from the whisky distilleries I have previously visited!! Host was very friendly, full of information and liberal with the free samples. As the distillery is a bit out of NOLA, I wouldn't have visited if the free shuttle bus hadn't been available. A very pleasant way to pass an afternoon!
This is a fun and very informative tour- with lots of tasting! They also make shipping bottles home extremely easy, so the fun continues!
Excellent, knowledgeable staff, friendly! Great rum!
