Good tour and a great drink at the end

At 12.50 (US) per person the tour is very overpriced but when you add in the cocktail at the end of the tour it all evens out. A good value and genial guides make this a must-see.

The "city tour guide left us in the entrance, no one the to explain anything. In 2 minutes you can see everything exposed there then you get to in a table with small cups of 4 or 5 different kinds of liqueurs. 3 steps more and you´re insede the store. That´s it. If you are passing by, stop there. If... More

We visited the distillery as part of a shore excursion while cruising. Our driver facilitated the tour telling us about the history of the distillery in relation to the history of the island. The tour was short, there were also information boards about the distillery process and it's history. There wasn't much going on as far as manufacturing while we... More

Thank you so much for visiting and writing your review. Our manufacturing process takes about 17 days. Distilling and filtering takes days and during those times we can't do much more than wait. More

It was OK to visit. Self tour is boring but free. It is about 4-5 large boards of reading to get a little of the history of Curacao and curacao drink. Curacao is a triple sec with great unique local taste. Don't think the colors mean anything, they are all the same just different coloring (at least from what I... More

This is a self guided tour that is very informative. Not a long tour but provides great history of the island and the liqueur. There were options for private tours that we didn't take. After the tour you can sample the liqueurs and there is an onsite bar for a drink and snack. Gift shop was nice. You can purchase... More

The "tour" is very short, you wind your way through one large room. In fact, you can't actually see anything made here at all, it's more a tour of various storyboards and items that describe the history of the factory. I'd recommend doing the free walk though and grabbing some free samples on the way out. Oh, and definitely pair... More

Thank you for your visit. We try to improve our explanation of the production process constantly so thank you for your feedback. To produce the liqueur takes 16 days minimum. A large part of the process is the distilling for a couple of days in the copper still, and some days in our mixing tank for filtering. At that time,... More
