New Rum Tour opens at Hampden

Hampden Estate recently opened its newest attraction, "The Hampden Rum Tour". This is in fulfilling the desire of many to share the history and unique rum distilling processes with vacationers, guests and rum connoisseurs.
To retain the authentic feel of this tour product, the original carriage house was re-purposed into the new visitor center,  the bar and shelving were made from old wood remnants from the distillery and lighting fixtures and accessories re-purposed from old factory artifacts. This in keeping with Hampden's policy on recycling and environmental stewardship.

 The tour was designed to create an authentic product where visitors can be educated in the art of rum making, smell, taste and drink unique blends in surroundings that are centuries old. A gift shop is also available for all things rum, unique accessories and memorabilia.

This unique visitor experience includes bird watching along the roadway to the distillery and viewing of Ducks, exotic Peacocks, Guinea Fowls and others. This make the trip not only educational but historical and delightful. The tour has been well received for its top class reception and tour experience, see Trip Advisor.  For further information visitors can also go to Hampden Rum Tour to read more and to make arrangements for that special tour experience. Remember to get your stock of Rum Fire and Hampden Gold while on tour for that special occasion.
