The Brugul Factory was a short walk from our resort which the resort recommended if we wanted to take back some rum. It's free and no real tour to go on. They lead us to a door to an overhead catwalk that gave you an overview of bottles being filled and labeled for shipment. At the end they gave you... More

It's hyped as a factory tour, but all you get to see is a 5 minute commercial for Brugal rum and then you are led to the Brugal rum store where you can purchase bottles of Brugal rum. I don't know if you save money buying here vs duty free. Just be warned - it's not a tour unless you... More

We visited the factory while in Puerto Plata already, just asked cabbie to take us there. The store is in off the main road and you have to go through guard house. We didn't bother with the factory tour, pretty similar to other liquor and wine tours so we went straight to the store and tasting bar. You are offered... More

Not so much a tour but a chance to buy cheap rum! If you view it this way then you will be pleased as the rum is at a great low price. If you want to see rum being made / see historic rum production even rum being bottled you will be disappointed. We bought cheap rum - yay !... More

Went here on my honeymoon with my wife and am glad I did. If you want cheap rum you can get it here. You can probably also haggle with people just about anywhere on the island and get it for the same price or maybe cheaper but I wasn't complaining about the prices here. You get to walk on an...

We did a little tour that showed us the bottling floor and the storage facilities. It's not a very in depth tour, but the tasting room was fun and the deals are great compared to duty free. We found the Siglo de Oro for $75 USD compared to $150 USD at the duty free nearest the gates.

open from 1-4pm, you get a short tour, a taste of all their rums, and the best thing about this is the price of the bottles there. very recommended.

Went stopped here on a tour of Puerto Plata. Tour was very short but somehow it was free. Not sure if it always free or not but ours was free. Which was great! They gave us numerous free shots as many as we liked which was awesome! Also the prices were WAY cheaper than the supermarket if you want rum... More

The tour was surprising in that Brugal uses old Jack Daniels oaken barrels. It wasn't overly long and worth the visit. What made this particularly special was that afterwards they gave our group a special tasting with cigar matching. I should mention that I was with a group of avid cigar smokers.
