Rum enthusiasts love Surinaamsch Rumhuis, a distillery, museum, and tasting room dedicated to one of the world's beloved tropical spirits. Guided tasting tours teach you how to taste like a professional, as you sample rums of varying vintage and quality. Shorter tours can also be arranged, skipping the distillery and getting straight to the business of tasting and learning about the history of rum and its impact on Surinamese culture. Cocktails on a sun-kissed patio finish the tour nicely. For travelers who use our world travel planner, Paramaribo holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Surinaamsch Rumhuis and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Good place to taste Surinamese rum. There are tours available. The making of Surinamese rum is explained. Rum is also available for sale along with souvenirs.  more »
  • Good film explaining the history of Rum making in Suriname. 3 very good tastes of their rum. Warsha explained everything I needed to know and was very helpful to me. I thank her.  more »
  • We went there twice but were denied access on both occasions, despite being there at the schedules tour times. The staff was very unhelpful and intransparent, and did not provide any help. We had no problem with waiting in e.g. the lobby, but were kept outside at 30° without further notice. Very disappointing.
  • Located on the premises of the Surinamese Alcohol Company. Guided tour is worth your time.
