This is the place where you can taste all of the local liqueurs. Make sure to purchase these on site, The airports do not have everything you'll want and we certainly can't find what we loved back in the states unfortunately!

Sampled aniseed and pineapple liquers on quick tour stop - very smooth and mellow. Minis are well-priced at 2.5 and 5 euros - with bottles at 10-15 euros.

Nice factory with tasty liquors. Especially the passion fruit liquor was our favourite. Nice for a shot stop when you drive by.

This place is well worth a visit not least because it can be a quick stop if you wish but a very interesting and worthwhile one. If you’re view of liquors is overly sweet, synthetic sticky or chemically then you’ll probably fall back in love...More

Just passed by without planning to visit so we stopped anyway. You are surrounded by fruit flavours while discovering the barrels before getting to the actual tasting area. So many different flavours ! Loved the milk and caramel liquor.
