If you’re doing some cross-country driving, consider this great Louisiana stop for an hour or two of enjoyment. It’s located about 100 miles along U.S. Route 10 west of the state capital, Baton Rouge. The facility makes high-quality rum in traditional copper pots, with the mixture of cane sugar and molasses.

Visitors are welcome Tuesdays through Saturdays for free tours. Not only do you get to see how the product is made, you also can sip free samples of the famed silver and spiced Bayou Rums. Of course, if you’re the driver who has had several sips, when you’re on the road again, give the wheel to one of your passengers for another couple of hours.
