A nice little trip on the way to or from puerta plata. Better prices than in the tax free and a fresh, new place. Pretty small so it didnt needed that much time.

My kids where very exiting looking at the machines making bottles of liquor. The shop is a great store to purchase bottles of Brugal rums way cheaper that the airport stores.

Really nothing to see here at all. You walk along a path above the workers in a factory. You do not see the making or mixing or separating the rum. You see none of the actual creating of the rum...just them packaging the rum bottles. Then when you are finished...you walk into the store to sample the different types of... More

Was included with our city tour so it was actually ok. Quick history is given to you before entering (family owned business/in business since the 1800's/now a rich family yadayadayada). We walked on a catwalk through a packaging factory and basically just saw workers hanging around watching the machinery. Then we were lead to the store where they had samples... More

We went as part of a cab tour. It was neat to see. Nothing too thrilling but fun. I enjoyed the tasting after and bought some rum. Best prices we saw for rum as well!

I thought that we would have a chance to see how the Brugal was made and the machines they used but it was a different experience Although I enjoyed my self it was not what I expected. We walked up to the factory we were told about the companies history and hope the rum is made then we walk inside... More
