This was part of the Wix tours made in Aruba tour. It was our last stop of the day. We were invited in the store, told a little about the rum making process and then with no pressure allowed to taste as many rums as we wanted. They make numerous rums (over 30) and have something for everybody. They don't... More

This is strictly a factory. There are no tours, no tastings. Rather they redirect you elsewhere for tastings. DON'T GO HERE FOR A TOUR/TASTING, they don't do it. In fact, they're likely so inundated with tourists looking for tasting tours they made up like paper cards with directions to the Orange Plaza Mall (see photo). Bummer the factory isn't open...

This place was on my list of places to go to and I inadvertently found it as I was looking for the Red Fish. It's located right behind Red Fish in the Orange Plaza. It was 9:00 pm and I saw that the open sign was still light. They were indeed getting ready to close (they actually close much earlier,but... More

Based on a number of trip advisor reviews we decided to go for the rum tasting experience. I thought it would be at the paera factory but they told us we had to go to the orange plaza. Upon arrival we we're kindly welcomed to sample some local rums and liquor. We had a very pleasant conversation with marsha and... More

My boyfriend and I saw this on tripadvisor and decided to give it a try. It was so fun. They literally had EVERY type of rum available to taste. Marsha was so sweet and friendly. We took home a bottle of the classic coconut as well as coco - pine (coconut/pineapple) which is soooo good with a splash of juice.... More

My wife fell in love with the almond joy rum and I love the spicy ginger. Marsha knows how to find you exactly what you like. With so many choices, they will find a drink that will satisfy you. The location is behind the Divi Golf Course and can be difficult to find, but once you find it, you will... More

My husband is a rum lover and this stop to Jerome and Marsha's was the best part of our trip - a must DO in Aruba! Yes, it was hard to find, but glad we finally found it. We enjoyed the free rum tasting and education. Bought six bottles and they do a great wrap job for traveling. The experience... More

This place is a little hard to find but worth the search! The owners Marsha and Jerome are the most friendly people you will find on the island and they definitely know their products. You can try the rums and boy do they have a lot! They are all soooo good! A definite must for anyone who likes rum and... More

At first, as said before, they are not located in rum factory. The shop is in Orange Plaza, right next to Red Fish Quality seafood (which is, by the way, great place to have dinner). There is a wide selection of different rums and you can taste them all - for free. The lady at the rum shop was very... More

As people have said before the sampling and purchasing is not at the factory but at Arubian Taste- the lady who waited on me and gave me samples was wonderfully charming. Only wish I could take more alcohol back with me. The coffee rum was an unexpected finding. Difficult to find but worth it. Thanks
