We got to sit through a video speak to workers about the process and taste many different variations (including the upcoming ones which they don't always let people taste!!!) Made sure to pick out what we like so we could purchase later for the flight home! Had the most incredible Blue Curacao Gelato on site.

Did not learn much about how they make the liquor. Everything is pretty much up on poster boards versus someone telling you about the place. At the end of the tour they had tasting of multiple flavors of the liquor, a smoothie bar, and a gift store. Not really worth going out of your way for. We were on a... More

Sorry to hear you didn't have a great time. Our self-explanatory (free) tour is indeed made up of poster boards. We do offer personal, guided tours with a cocktail included in the price. Unfortunately, most island tours don't allow the time to do that. More

There really is not a whole lot to see here but it was educational and seriously, how can a visit to Curacao be complete without a trip to the distillery that produces this multi-colored liquer.

We were taking a van tour with Casper Tours and we stopped here. It was great that they provided samples. We rarely drink but these tasted so good, especially the flavor that's only sold on the island! I wish I would have bought some to bring home but I wasn't sure of the logistics of transporting it back. This is... More

As a part of a tour, I had a quick 15 minutes at this distillery. I had heard of the blue Curaçao, but wasn't aware of the other flavors. Needless to say, I purchased 2 bottles and a sampler pack before returning to the cruise ship. It is quite good and makes a delicious souvenir!

An interesting place to visit to hear about the history of Curacao Liqueur and the family who makes it. It's a very small place and a self guided tour (though I think you can pay for one, but I don't think it would be worth it). After you walk around and read the history, you can taste samples of the... More

Nice liqueur and pretty colors but the place is small and a bit boring. Go they to support the place but keep your expectations low. Enjoy talking with be employees and try to get in to story of the place. The way the story is told is a bit messy and you need to read it twice to find order... More

This short & sweet tour was included in my cruise ship excursion. I was amazed at how small the factory is. The employees even label each bottle by hand. Hey, if it ain't broke, don't fix it. The Tamarind is delicious, by the way :)

Thank you for visiting. We are proud to still have an authentic process, mostly done by hand. Most people expect a large factory as Blue Curacao is world famous, but we operate on a small Caribbean island. More

Short tour, smaller than expected factory. Interesting facts offered regarding the liquor and its origin and make up. Quick taste of three favors were provided at the end.

Spent a thoroughly enjoyable hour or so at the Curacao Liqueur distillery. Arrived and was the only one there - so they put on an English tour just for me. A Dutch couple arrived and they got a personalized Dutch tour as well. Suddenly about 20 buses packed with cruise ship patrons arrived. Despite this Eli kept finding breaks in... More
