LOVED seeing the rum factory!! Very impressive operation!! And, at the end, you can sample the various types of rum they make before you make your purchase. And, everyone is so nice!

This was a 1 hour trip to the rum factory, worth the visit to see the whole process from start to finish. Very interesting to see where the history of rum and how far we have come with the delicious drink. I would recommend to anybody who has made the long haul flight to spend the £10 and get educated...

We did this on the City Tour. You get a brief story about the company, and see the inner factory, but nothing the delves into the process of making rum.

I wanted to see how it was made and the process but just got to see the bottle process. But that was great to see how many they can make in just a few minutes. The tasting stating is really good. You can taste from the best to the worse brugal has to offer.

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
