Thank you for taking the time to write your review, we are glad you have partially enjoyed the tour Unfortunately we do not produce sugar in Aruba to produce the rum,( 99% of our product in Aruba are inported ) Palmera Rum purchase the molasses imported and in Aruba they have their secret to blend it in a small family factory. Jerome at the Aruban Taste bay the rum from Palmera and create the flavor rum and only sold in the shop.Its the same with the brewery all the ingredients are also imported and in Aruba the family has their formula to produce the Balashi Beer Yes all business are inspected and has to comply with the law otherwise the authority will close the business Hope to inform you thank you for your time

I would recommend this tour! Our guide,Neil was very knowledgeable as well as kind and polite. All the places we visited as well were informative and well planned for first comers to Aruba! It was a great opportunity to buy local goods to taste, or take home as souvenirs.
