Fun experience girls outing!
Jun 2021 • Family
I found out today the Arubian Taste had closed their location so I messaged them on FB messenger. Marcia responded immediately. They moved the shop to their house during the pandemic. Not knowing, I had already scheduled 7 of us to meet in our resort lobby to cancel over there and do a taste testing. I was in need of some rum. Marcia and her family accommodated us well even though they had a tour coming in. My friends loved it. . She gives you a taste testing sheet to mark your preferences. Purchases were e wrapped carefully in bubble wrap to take home also.

They will deliver to your resort if you prefer.

This has become an annual visit for us (well except for 2020).

A MUST VISIT on your trip to Aruba!
Apr 2021
The Arubian Taste is a MUST visit for anyone traveling to Aruba (and for any rum lover!). We visited with Marsha twice during our two week trip. She is so friendly and thoughtful, and let us taste so many rums before purchasing. She even bubbled wrapped our bottles for travel back home. Come here for an authentic experience with one of a kind products! We can't wait to come back and see Marsha again!

The perfect place to start your vacation
Mar 2020
We have been visiting Arubian Taste for years, since we stumbled upon it on our very first visit to Aruba almost 20 years ago. The owners are absolutely amazing and knowlegable about their products and I love how much they let you taste to find what you'll love. I've walked out of my start of vacation tasting very tipsy and very happy! No matter how many times I taste the different flavors that the offer, I always return to my #1 favorite, their Coconut Rum. Even my mom, who doesn't like coconut, or drinking rum alone, can sip a glass of this straight, and love it. We usually buy a few bottles on a visit, and then our chosen juice at the store and mix some wonderful drinks in our condo before heading off for dinner each night. At home I love to add their coconut rum to sprite and orange juice or just to some fresca, it's very refreshing, but also wonderful alone. I cannot be without this in my home, it's just that good!

Whenever someone I know is going to Aruba, I always tell them to stop here, try out the rum and bring some home, and everyone who has taken my advice has returned with rave reviews (and once a bottle of coconut rum, just for me!). Give them a try, I don't see how you can possibly be disappointed!

Forget PQP, The Arubian Taste is the new place
Feb 2020
They moved to the Orange plaza. All you can drink and taste. Best flavored rum was definitely the coco/pine! Try it! You won't be disapointed!

Only one negative - so many flavors, and they only get better!
Mar 2020
We stopped in on a whim and, while a bit difficult to get to, its well worth the time spent trying! We got there as a couple was leaving and Julie was chipper and eager to tell us all she could about the owners and the rums available! It seemed that she had experience in which ones to give us tastes of but by all means dont forget to mention the creamed rums! OH MY GOSH! the pistachio creamed rum is one that everyone in the family liked so much we each bought a bottle! Additionally, it seemed that there was no limit to what you could taste and by far, we've thought about going back on our last day just to sample a few others (( and buy more because we already opened, and about finished, some of the ones we bought!)). If you like rum, or really, any flavored liquors, I'm sure this spot will not disappoint!
