When you take the Cruzan Rum Distillery Tour, you’ll be stepping into St Croix History. Rum has been produced on this same St Croix property since 1760! And likely when you visit the factory on St Croix, you’ll bump into one of the Nelthropps – after 8 generations, they still run the show.

Rich in heritage, the Cruzan Rum distillery is “the world’s most honored rum distillery in the world”. The hand-crafted rum is not only the basis of Cruzan Rum ®, but they are also the largest supplier of American private and distributer label rum. With their well-earned place in American History, the Cruzan Rum Distillery is one of two rum manufacturers included on the American Whiskey Trail.

While the Captain Morgan Distillery and Experience Center is state-of-the-art, the Cruzan Rum Tour will take you on a personal journey through the making … and tasting of this piece of Virgin Islands history and culture. Take your time, enjoy, don’t hurry… it’s the Crucian way!

Tours can now be booked on their website. 

Hint: This is the best place to purchase rum to take home with you. Cruzan offers great deals on 6-bottle packages (each adult returning to the US can bring back 6-bottles of alcohol duty-free if one was distilled in the US Virgin Islands). The great folks at Cruzan Rum will pack your rum safely into a travel box for you to take home. And the best part is that it doesn’t count as one of your checked bags (so you don’t pay to fly it home). You can thank the USVI Government and Dept of Tourism for that!
