The tour is well worth doing if you have the opportunity, lots of neat info. The rum is not to my taste, I find a bit of a musty taste to the rum, likely from the used bourbon barrels. I found Barcelo Rum much more...More

Typical tour of a rum factory. Amazing how many bottles of rum are produced in a day. Short tour really and not boring.

tour is not worth it, better off going to do something else, thought it would have given more of the background of the rum and more taste testing, the rum was good :)

A nice stop while in the Puerto Plata area. Tour is inexpensive and informative. Wish it were a little longer with more of the products to taste. The gift shop was great. Purchased a Brugal domino table and their high end rum.

I do not remember seeing a white rum in the shop at the factory. They do have a website. Try getting on there and messaging them. I recommend a visit to the factory.

We also arranged for a driver. Cost us $60 for the day. I believe the tour was 5 per person. Purchases on site are a good deal. No shipping
