Opened in June 2013 this is Grand Cayman’s only distillery and the only source of handcrafted spirits in the islands. The tour opened with some tastings as we got to sample fresh batches of Seven Fathoms Rum, Gun Bay Vodka, and Governor’s Reserve Rum. We then got a behind-the-scenes look at their unique approach.
Inside the custom-built 5000 square foot facility we saw a 1200 gallon Vendome copper pot still, a 30 foot tall Gun Bay Vodka tower, and their original Christian Carl pot still that is used to perfect Seven Fathoms Rum.
They taught us things we did not know about alcohol, we even got to sample the liquor in various stages of the distilling process. Once the distillery tour was over it was back to the tasting room where we got to pour our own samples, we were even allowed behind the bar to take some pics and took part in Shotski.
