Brief but informative tour of the rum barrel store and bottling plant. Free sampling bar was very popular and we bought a few bottles home. Good guides. Worth a visit if you are in the area but not a long stay destination

Tour was free, poor and lasted about 5-6 minutes. Apart from looking at various distinctive barrels and walking down through lines of barrels, the tour through the factory (in mid-Sept 2014) was boring. Nothing was beinng produced and the production lines were still. However, the rum tasting session was very good and the choice of rums to taste was excellent.... More

A free tour to the local rum factory. A guide explains all the process to prepare rum. In the end of the tour you can try every kind of rum you like and even buy the bottles at a discounted price.

Rum Factory, Arucas - Here is charging between 6,000 and 12,000 bottles of rum per hour, which can be stored in one of Europe's largest rum cellar. And within the company, there is a museum where you can view a history of making rum. Once you meet the need for knowledge, the Rum Factory and you can taste the rum... More

When is Distillery NOT a Distillery? Answer, when it is the Arehucas Storage and Bottling plant. We visited this place a part of an organized tour. It claims to be the most important distillery in Europe which is a very big joke, (and what would amount to breach of the UK Trades Descriptions Act). The actual distillery is in South... More

Visited as part of a guided tour. Impressive storage area full of barrels but not much happening in the distillery itself which is fully automated but nothing was working!! It's a good job our guide provided us with lots of information. There was a bar area where all the varieties of rum are available for sampling - take care not... More

We drove up from Maspolomas and decided to stop at a couple of places en-route so by the time we got to the town it was about 3pm. Be warned, there are no signs to the distillery and some people didn't even know where it was. We saw a large chimney with the name on it so we headed towards... More

Visited as part of a guided tour. Shown around the area where the casks full of rum are stored. You are then taken through to the bottling area which, unfortunately, was not operational. This was followed by entering a bar area where you could sample the different types of flavoured rum. If you were not careful, you could get light... More
