Located in Salisbury just off of the main west coast highway, this estate has a history dating back to pre-war years, Dominica's major rum distillery has seen up and downs.
The Macoucherie Estate has been in the Shillingford family for several generations and is now the only (official) distillery on the island to produce rum from local cane. Not any cane however is up to the job - Macoucherie uses only that grown on its estate.
Producing 10,000 gallons annually, and up to four types of bottled rum, it's a large operation. But the processes are essentially the same as that of the small-scale operation producing moonshine.
To have a tour of the distillery you must call ahead.
Tours are about 30 - 45 mins long and include free samples from each of the 4 rums.
Tour costs US$3.00
