With your voucher in hand, make your way to the Mount Gay Visitor Center, located on Spring Garden Highway in Bridgetown, Barbados. Purchasing your ticket ahead of time guarantees your place on this popular tour; tours depart every half hour between 9:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. No reservations are necessary.
Follow your guide into the Heritage Room, where you can sip a rum punch and learn about the history of the island's famous rum. View a short film dedicated to the spirit, then head to the tasting room to sample three different rums. Listen to your guide talk about the differences between each sample; you will have the opportunity to upgrade to a Full Tasting, which includes the Origin Series and 1703 rums.
Then, it's on to the bottling plant to see where the bottling process takes place and the Signature Bar for your last two samples.
