Depart your hotel for a scenic drive as we make our way to the home of the “World’s Best Tasting Rhum”, where Topper’s Rhum is handmade, bottled, and packaged with precision. Topper’s Rhum has won over twenty-five international awards and 1st place in 2019’s USA Today’s 10BEST Rum Distillery in the Caribbean.
A knowledgeable guide will give you a hands-on tour as you walk through our 6,000 sq. ft. distillery. You will learn a little history of rum and rum making in the Caribbean and a behind the scenes look at how we ferment, distill and filter rum. After that you will see our blending process and how we expertly bottle our handcrafted rums. You will learn how we insure our products meet the highest quality standards and how we create our rums and even try some of our 100+ flavors that are in development. Next you will be invited to our tasting barrels where you can enjoy unlimited samplings of our six signature rums and our famous rum cake. You will then enter our barrel aging room and experience how to properly nose and taste rum. Following the guided tour, you will have time to shop for unique St. Maarten gifts, our signature rums and limited edition specialty rums that are only available for purchase at the distillery.
Leaving the distillery, you will take a drive across the Caribbean’s largest lagoon to Topper’s award-winning restaurant. An expert cook and mixologist will give you a hands-on cooking class demonstrating how to cook with rum. You will be served samples of the food we cook. We will also share rum cocktail recipes and demonstrate how to make some fun Caribbean concoctions.
A leisurely sightseeing drive will take you back to your hotel.
