This is an amazing exhibition and Pedro gave us an incredible amount of information. He was an enthusiastic and very knowledgeable guide. Pedro did not speak much English but we understood most of what he told us although our Spanish is not of the best, and he is a goldmine of information. There are some very intriguing things in this exhibition and it was fascinating to see how much history is stored in this museum. Well worth a visit and there is a tasting at the end of your visit. The coffee Anis is really nice. A place not to be missed.

Unassuming entrance but what a welcome. The exhibition is simply spectacular and Pedro's enthusiasm and love of the subject is contagious. A family business handed down through the generations you will thoroughly enjoy your visit. Pedro speaks little English but if you don't have no worries he will look after you. As a bonus the tasting goes on and on ...

You will never meet anyone with so much passion,knowledge or enthusiasm for his chosen subject. I had no idea there was such a history or depth to the story of aguadiente.

A unique museum, tracing the history of the distilling industry in Rute, and of Anis in Spain generally. The history is fascinating. Amazing collection, and passionately explained by the "historian/guide". No English at all, but understood with a smattering of Spanish. Good range of products available for purchase, but no pressure to do so. We were offered a tasting of anything we showed any interest in!

Not any sort of ordinary, run of the mill museum, but an extraordinary private exhibit brought together with immense, individual care and dedication by owner Pedro Pérez, who has been collecting bottles, labels – many of them really gorgeous designs – old letters and everything else to do with the anises, cazallas and other fire-waters of Spain (but Rute and Andalucia in particular) for 50 years. The huge collection of over 25,000 items from the thousands of anis brands that once existed in Spain is stunning by itself, but it's brought alive by the passion of sr Pérez and his colleagues, explaining stories around the drinks with contagious enthusiasm (even if a little is sometimes lost in translation). Highlights include sumptuous posters from the 'golden age' of anis between 1900–1930, and the revelation that one of the famous early posters for coca cola was clearly plagiarised from an ad for... cazalla, the ultra-strong anís variant once the favourite of Spain's heavy drinkers. Plus, sr Pérez also makes his own excellent anis, and tastings are included in the museum ticket. His products (sweet or dry anis, plus a great coffee liqueur and pacharán) are very subtle and delicately flavoured, far better than the better-known mass-produced brands. Anyone who's ever tried Spanish anis and thought it's just a throat-burner should seek out Rute and try them out.
