  • Simple little stop. Great run tasting and free. Plenty of parking and space. The train ride was short and simple. Not a must see in my opinion but still worth your time if you have it.
  • This is a must go if you just want to experience some new or different alcohol. The tasting is sweet and fun. You can come first thing in the morning and sign up for later times if need be. You get to know some history, Hawaiian, and some rum. The hostess Jayme makes it worth your while
