The visit to the factory takes about 10 mins. At the end, when you are brought into the shop, you are given tasters of which you are charged for. There was a fruit punch and of course rum:) however upon asking the staff member behind the counter if the fruit punch, which was crushed ice, contained any of the rum,... More

I visited the factory with a few friends. The guide was very friendly and humourous. However, the tour was very brief. We got a chance to see many aspects of the rum production processes. The scent of the rum will excite alcohol lovers once you set foot inside the factory building (No Photography allowed). The alcohol sold in the gift... More

We visited the Brugal Rum Factory while on our Marysol Tour of Puerto Plata. On this same tour we visited a cigar factory, Malecon cathedral, fort San Filipe, and the statue of Christ our Lord. We were also scheduled to go to the amber museum but after all the free samples of rum and cigars, we were too tired and... More

It was nice to see the actual rum production process, I wish that the photo taking was allowed. At the end of the short trip around the factory you can buy extra cheap rum (plenty of different to choose from)

Worth the visit simply because you get a free tasting at the end and you can buy 7$ Rum bottles ... 7$ ... think about it !!

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
