The person who gave us the tour was wonderful. We got to try many of the liquors before purchasing. He even bubble wrapped the ceramic bottle so it wouldn't break on our travels home. You can buy in many stores on the island but if...More

This is the place where you can taste all of the local liqueurs. Make sure to purchase these on site, The airports do not have everything you'll want and we certainly can't find what we loved back in the states unfortunately!

Rather tucked away, but we found this place on our way down from Lagoa do Fogo, by following a couple of signs. The distillery building and grounds are very attractive, but there didn't appear to be any tours of the actual facility. Very nice gift...More

Nice factory with tasty liquors. Especially the passion fruit liquor was our favourite. Nice for a shot stop when you drive by.

If you can find the main square where the theater is in Ribeira Grande, you're steps away from the Mulher de Capote tasting area. Sample delicious liquors made in São Miguel. Keep in mind however, that in order to bring some home you'll have to...More
