    Great tour, better drinks
    Great tours with friendly guide. We were on a cruise but booked from the website. So glad we did. The big tours were rushing through with huge crowds. There were three of us in our group and the tour guide was great and made sure we got to the best positions for viewing the information and provided a full description and history. Their is a line for samples that was packed with the big groups and they were lined up like and assembly line. Our guide took us to a table the. Brought our samples one at a time. Afterwards he brought our 2 drinks that came with our package. I would highly recommend and would highly recommend booking directly through the website and taking a taxi over.

    Fun Distillery Tour
    This was a fun experience learning how Curacao came about. A great way to spend a little time relaxing on their patio and trying their cocktails. Also, you can purchase the limited edition 80 proof release in the shop.

    Enjoyable piece of history 🍹
    Good place to visit and learn about the history of the liquor. Short tour as this is a small facility. The guide was knowledgeable and spoke English well. After the tour the tasting of 3 samples of Curaçao liquor and 1 good drink ( you can have more if you purchase better ticket) The gift store offers choice of curaçao liquor and some aloe products.

    Cocktails were so fun to make
    Amazing people telling the history of the distillery. I had no idea the history and intrigue! We did the cocktail workshop. Hilarious to make drinks. Instructor was so patient. We took turns taking photos for others that we didn’t know making drinks. It just has that community feel that makes you want to help others.

    Such a fun afternoon!
    The cocktail workshop was so much fun! The tour itself was interesting - history we never knew and cool to see them continuing to make the liquor right there. It was nice getting the “welcome drink” to sip on the tour, then you get mini samples of all five flavors of curaçao liquor. We had too much fun at the cocktail workshop part - our lovely guide Sol helped us learn how to do everything, then we each got to pick two different cocktails to make from a huge recipe sheet. There was a nice jar of bar nuts available to munch on as we sipped, and the courtyard/garden/bar area where the workshop is held is quite pleasant. Lots of neat birds to watch as you sipped, as well. This was a great tour, and I’m so glad we did it. Be sure to do the cocktail workshop, not just the tour. You won’t be sorry!

    Cocktails in Curacao
    Our tour guide Ingo was knowledgeable and fun! We loved learning about Blue Curacao and the other Curacao Liqueurs. The tasting was great and we all had a hard time choosing our cocktail after because there were so many delicious sounding choices on the menu. We all enjoyed relaxing and sipping our cocktail at the end of the tour.

    This is a very popular tour with cruise ships. We were a big group and there was another tour group behind us. It is a quick but entertaining experience. I took pictures of the birds that were attracted by a feeder. Even saw a beautiful saffron finch. They have small shop at the exit where you can get souvenirs and buy their liquor.

We were on a Saturday so there was not much going on. The staff were friendly and we made some purchases in the liquor store. Later that day when we stopped into a liquor store in Willemstad, we found the exact same product for 30% less. We were very disappointed as we felt that we should be getting the best price from the distillery, not from a retail store in town.

Commercialized experience without any character or soul. This is not a distillery tour or a historic tour, it's simply set up as a way to sell cocktails and souvenirs with some plaques and pictures of the company's history. You don't even see any part of the distillery process, or the actual ingredients. This is worse than the Bacardi tour in Puerto Rico. Only come if you have a reason to say you've actually been to the Blue Curacao factory, not worthwhile otherwise. Staff are friendly.

This was our second visit to the Distillery. Our first visit was in 2019 during a shore excursion on a cruise. This time we were on our own during our stay in Willemstad. Much more pleasant this time since we were moving at our own pace and not being kept to the tour guides schedule. It is a must do if you like a fine iced cocktail at a very reasonable price. I am a big fan of Senor Blue Curaçao and the price here is about the best you can get.

Took the 2pm tour of the distillery. We did not make advance reservations and did not have any problems getting spots on the next tour. Tour was 30-40 minutes and included many exhibits that would be possible to tour on your own. There was a window to watch distillery workers labeling bottles. At the end of the tour, you could sample a three different types of the liquor. The tour also included a free drink at the bar afterwards (you could choose any mixed drink from the menu). While we found the distillery and tour interesting, the liquor was much too sweet for our tastes.

I booked my mother's 70th birthday party here. They had the event after hours and I cannot say enough as to how helpful Stacy was in planning everything. Stacy coordinated the entire event with all my requests being fulfilled, I had a DJ, photographer, goodies for the guests, catering, baked goods, bartenders and a private tour of the Curacao distillery. Lot's of history and information and such a great time. Stacy handled the decorating and ensured I received my deposit back the next day in cash. The whole event was the best part of the trip, truly amazing. The venue was so nice and friendly. It was outdoors and in the evening, it is Curacao in July so it was warm, but no one cared, we all had a great time. Stacy helped me find a chef to work at my villa for feeding my group breakfast and dinner on other days. They are very blessed to have Stacy working there and we would definitely have another event there.
