We did this as part of our Taxi tour. It cost $3 each for my wife and I to go on and we met quite a few people on a cruise ship excursion. This is a relatively short tour that talks about the history of the family and briefly explained the rum distilling process. They show an empty barrel the... More

They provide a short tour, the guide was great with what he had to work with. The tour would have been more interesting had the factory was actually operating at the time of our tour. Perhaps it is with a morning tour from the cruise port. It was our last stop of the day. They have a nice gift shop... More

The Brugal Rum Factory was on a tour I took, or I would not have chosen to go there since I don't like rum. The factory was the last stop on what had been a busy day, and the tour involved quite a bit of standing as the tour guide explained the Brugal family history as rum producers, the growth... More

Very informative tour on the process of making their rum and the history of their company. Free samples of 2 different aged rums and a peek at their rum is packaged. The tour ends in their gift shop where you can purchase different rums.

First of all I had no idea what to expect. You walk into their factory and truly get a hands on feel on how they make rum. It was a lot of fun. We loved learning about it and seeing how it's made and best of all tasting the rum and buying some cheap souvenirs.

We did this as part of a city tour excursion. It was a quick tour (only about 45 minutes). There isn't much to the plant floor itself, but learning about the history and how they make their different kinds of rum was interesting. Obviously, the free rum samples were the best part. Went in sober, left kinda tipsy. Your last... More
