Lots of samples, from the blueberry cocktail prize in the informative quiz to the full range of products. Well worth the $15 pp to be collected from the French Market (by Bob in the Rum Bus) and taste the different rums and their speciality Gingeroo!

We got picked up and taken to a nondescript industrial area. It was a surprisingly fun and informative experience to learn about the production process and try some of the product. All of the rums were great. Their 20 year anniversary rum is amazing and...More

Usually my husband is the rum drinker in our family... that was until I tried Gingeroo. As a die hard ginger fan this premixed drink is delicious. Their other rums were very good, too...smooth with great flavors. I’ll be mail ordering these in the future!

First visit to a rum distillery. There was a free shuttle from the French Quarter to the place and back. Great sampling and knowledge from our tour guide Bob.

They only offer the tour at specific times, so in order to get the exact time we wanted, we booked online in advance. Also, if you are planning on using their shuttle, you definitely need to book in advance. Enjoy!
