That's why Topper's Rhum is the ideal souvenir to take home from your visit to Sint Maarten: produced right here on island, this award winning rum comes in many exciting flavors and can be enjoyed in mixed drinks or straight up.
The Topper's Rhum distillery offers now guided tours of their facility - and the tour includes unlimited rum tasting! Tour-guide Dave is explaining many fascinating details about the challenges of producing a world-class product on a tiny island such as St. Maarten. The 90 minute presentation goes through the complete production and bottling process. A visit to the small test lab lets visitors taste some of the experimental blends, which have not found their way to the market yet.
The highlight comes at the end of the tour: Dave opens the official 'Rhum Tasting' session by offering samples of all flavored Rhums produced. The price of the tour for only $24 pp can't be beat, especially considering that the tasting is an 'all you can drink' affair.
This is a great tour for visitors who like to experience something off the beaten path. The operation is located in one of the island's commercial districts, a circumstance which also allows a glimpse into the working life of the locals.
