The host was very kind and helpful, willing to give us more samples than we were ready for before noon! Tried a few, bought three bottles of the Aruba made Palmera Rum.

This is the cheapest place around the island to buy alcohol and have a party in fact all the tours which announce themselves like "open bar" buy their licor here, great customer service and very affordable prices, recommended.

This is strictly a factory. There are no tours, no tastings. Rather they redirect you elsewhere for tastings. DON'T GO HERE FOR A TOUR/TASTING, they don't do it. In fact, they're likely so inundated with tourists looking for tasting tours they made up like paper...More
