My boyfriend and I went on a tour and tasting for our anniversary and it was a lot of fun. The distillery looks great and the tour was very informative. It was no problem at all for the guide to host it in English, since there were non-Dutch-speaking people there. Great quality rum as well. Definitely recommend it!
