The Mount Gay Visitor Experiences

Discover the world's oldest rum distillery

For over 300 years, Mount Gay has been crafting deeply rich and aromatic rums in Barbados, the birthplace of rum. Visit the original landscape and buildings where it all began, back in 1703.  

Tour the historic Mount Gay distillery in St. Lucy to experience the fully-operational rum making headquarters. Explore the still house, with the recommissioned Coffey still, one of the three remaining, copper stills in the world.

Experience The Life and Culture of Mount Gay

Head to the open-air Mount Gay Visitor Centre located in Historic Bridgetown, for a deep dive into the traditions and flavours of Mount Gay rum.

The workshops have something for every palate and a visit is a must for anyone setting foot on the island for the first or 100th time.

The Signature Tasting is the perfect introduction to the history of Mount Gay and taste a selection of their finest rums. They can try their hand at making cocktails in the Cocktail Workshops, or sit back and enjoy a rum tasting followed by a Bajan lunch.

Do not forget to stop in the gift shop to grab Mount Gay accessories rum cake and of course a bottle of rum.
