What you'll do

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. Every tour 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.

Monday-Thursday: All tours are private for your group only.

Where you'll be

Happy Raptor Distilling is proudly located in a renovated historic building in New Orleans' Central City neighborhood - only one block away from St. Charles Ave. and the street car line. Once an auto-mechanic's garage in the early 1920's, the distillery has seen many different lives. Now thoughtfully restored, Happy Raptor Distilling is thrilled to welcome neighbors and friends back into this familiar space.

This tour was the best. We didn’t know what to expect since it was so inexpensive but it was a pleasant surprise. Warm, inviting, personal experience. Definitely worth it.

This was such a great experience! From the delicious free cocktail to learning about how much detail and care they put into their products, ever minute we spent there was well worth it :) and the team who works there is just as incredible as the products they sell!

A great, quick tour that was detailed with information about the rum making progress. We were able to choose our cocktail which made us all happy! Having a place to chill and drink after was a plus!

April is the nicest person ever! Going to the Happy Raptor was a favorite for my boyfriend and I. The story behind the bar is AWESOME. The rum is one of a kind! We will be forever customers every single time we go to New Orleans.

This was a fun thing to do. We were looking for something to do that we have never done before in New Orleans. We really enjoy supporting small local things. Meagan was passionate about her job and the people she works for so her telling us about it all made it very interesting!
