Sugar never tastes so good as when it's distilled into rum. And a visit to the Cruzan distillery, founded in 1760, is not only a treat, it's an island classic. The same family has been producing this rum for eight generations. Guided visits weave through the factory's operations, past bubbling liquids and wooden casks, with guides explaining the spirit-making process from distilling to bottling. Tours conclude with sample cocktails, and purchased bottles can be packed for travel.
