Curacao Liqueur Distillery, Willemstad

3.1
Go behind the scenes to see the making of the island's most famous export at Curacao Liqueur Distillery. Distilled onsite since 1896, the liqueur with an iconic deep-blue color was invented, as many great things are, by chance. A local, experimenting with the rinds of the native citrus fruit called Laraha, came up with the drink that would become synonymous with the island country. Take a tour of the facility and learn the history and production process of the liqueur, then treat yourself to a sampling at the onsite bar.

  • We had a terrific tour of the distillery. Samples of each of the Curacao liqueurs were available and there is a great stop on site for purchases. In addition to the Blue Curaçao I also like the Tamari...  more »
  • It is a farmhouse where you can see the whole process of production of the liqueur curacao and where are kept on display systems used in the past. Everything revolves around the production and sale and the tourist gets involved directly into the atmosphere until you have the pleasure of buying a bit of distilled. Nothing very fancy but very cute.

  • Take your own self led tour of the small distillery. There are many fakes out there but this is the original blue Curacao liqueur. Gift shop and samples! Tamerind was my favorite flavor.  more »

  • Provides a short overview of how the island's liquor is made. Enjoyed lemon sorbet with a splash of blue Curacao. Came as part of a tour, but the liquor is not good enough for a special trip out here. The same company makes Alcolado Glacial, but the prices are not better here than in a convenience store, pharmacy, or supermarket.
  • Took a tour here and we learned a lot about the history of this liqueur as well as how each of their varieties are made. Samples of course too... The Curacao liqueur was priced less here than any of the other islands. My wife bought the chocolate one.
  • Bit of a tourist trap. Tour was uninformative, short, with fork lifts driving through. Lined up for the free samples then quickly to the gift shop. Price's in the gift shop more expensive than in town.
  • I loved this place. Cool short tour through the facility, free tasting, and good bar to get drinks with the liquor. Worth putting this on your agenda.
  • One of the place to visit and experience making or tasting liqour. A fun place to be and also to buy your curacao liqour
