Indulge in two of St. Maarten's favorite pastimes: savoring the island's flavorful rum and sampling Caribbean cuisine. And this excursion accomplishes both with a visit to Topper's Rhum Distillery, acclaimed as the "World's Best Tasting Rhum." A knowledgeable guide will lead you through the 6,000- square-foot distillery and share how the handcrafted rums are fermented, distilled and filtered to create a delicate and an undeniably smooth finish. In the tasting room, you can imbibe in unlimited samplings of six signature rums and St. Maarten's famous famous rum cake. A visit to the barrel aging room offers a lesson in how to properly nose and taste rum. Leaving the distillery, you'll drive to Topper's award-winning restaurant and learn how to cook with rum and create some fun Caribbean concoctions served with a tasty sampler plate. A leisurely sight-seeing drive will take you back to the port of St. Martin.
