The tour is very informative and suitable for all ages. It includes a walk along the catwalk overlooking huge vats of simmering molasses, a look at the rum barrels being filled and stacked four or five high in the warehouse where they will age for at least two years, and a stop at the rum's processing area where it is prepped for its final journey to Kentucky.
After the tour, which only lasts about 20-25 minutes, everyone is given two free drink tickets at the bar where they'll make anything you want (as long as it includes rum and they have the rest of the ingredients). When we took the tour the drink of the day was a delicious concoction of various rum flavors and fruit juices called a Fruit Basket. The drink alone was worth the price of admission.
