Happy Raptor Distilling is thrilled to welcome you for a tour and rum tasting at New Orleans’ newest rum distillery! Follow the journey of 504Rum from the sugarcane fields of Louisiana, to our custom-made copper still, to the cocktail in your hand. We’ll guide you through the process of how our small batch, handcrafted rum is made on-site, including an explanation of the base ingredients, the unique Caribbean-style processes involved in the creation of 504Rum that are rare to find in the United States, and the various botanicals and fruits used to create our unique signature blends. The combined tour and tasting lasts approx. 45 minutes and includes one pre-batch cocktail (distiller’s choice), a free tasting of all 504Rum products, and a laid-back good time.

What's Included
  • Free cocktail upon arrival
  • Tasting of four main products: 504Silver, 504Gold, 504Hibiscus, and 504Bananas Foster
Meal Options
  • Hibiscus Lemonade - Our most popular cocktail since opening. Our naturally infused 504Hibiscus Rum mixed with lemonade makes for a delicious, refreshing cocktail.

Rum adventure in NOLA - Tour was informative and we were able to see how the different infusions are made from rum soaked pecans to bananas and spices. The 5 samples were generous and the introductory cocktail was very refreshing.

A good up close experience! - Really fun! The young lady that conducted the tour was really nice. My only change would be the Rum Tasting portion. They got busy and since it's a smaller establishment the had to serve patrons and weren't able to really explain each Rum.
