    Lovely distillery, wonderful people, great spirits!
    The first thing they said to is when we walked in was “have you ever drink a cactus?” Which was followed by a complimentary east of their cadushy of Bonaire liqueur which was delicious. Then Kris showed us around and told us how they make their drinks and explained the origin of the distillery as well as the story of each alcohol they make. We got to sample the liquors the produce and then had some cocktails on their patio. It was such a wonderful experience and i even bought a few bottles to bring home with me back to the US. I am really looking forward to making some of my own cocktails with their spirits of Bonaire!

    Enjoyable visit, great for souvenirs
    We went in the late afternoon to Cadushy right before they closed. Jan gave us a wonderful overview and tasting. We appreciated their staying open a little late for us. We bought several souvenirs, and Jan advised us accurately and helpfully on travel limits for bringing home the delicious liqueurs/alcohol in carry-on and checked bags. We also loved the cats and birds!

    Rum Tasting
    We stopped here on our tour and tried some rum. Some were great, others tasted like cough medicine. The green was our favorite. It was a cool place. The birds were colorful and we learned how they pick up cactus. Highly recommend!

    Fun side trip
    A fun little trip into Rincon. The tours takes only 10-15 minutes. The staff was cheerful, pleasant and knowledgeable. Kris answered all our questions. It was fun to sample all of the products. A nice sitting area to watch the local birds. The only downer was the lack of food options. There is a limit to how much you can/should sample without food. There was nothing offered to eat with the samples. We went on a Tuesday and couldn’t find places to eat after the tour. So maybe pack a picnic so that you can linger and enjoy the bar.

    Great distillery to check out and cool down
    The distillery was a stop on our van tour of Bonaire. It was a great experience from start to finish. For starters very clean bathrooms! The distillery itself is lovely and there were quite a few beautiful trees and birds about. The staff was great very friendly and not pushy for you to buy their goods. I purchased their house whiskey to bring home to my husband and he says he likes it very much. They also had nice ice cold soda and water available for purchase - a real God send on a 99 degree day!!

    Nice place to be
    We take the golf caddy to the Cadushy Distillery. A very nice woman greets us warmly and gives us something to try. We learn everything about the production of Cadushy Likör and try so much more. We drink a Cocktail in the very nice garden and enjoy the place.

    Cadushy Distillery in Rincon is a must for your vacation to Bonaire.
    We loved visiting the Cadushy Distillery in Rincon, Bonaire. We tasted their rum, vodka, and whiskey and especially loved the run. We splurged and bought a Limited Edition bottle of Rom Rincon and a bottle of whiskey and had no trouble bringing them home to the US in our checked suitcase. Yolanda was especially helpful. Their history and tour were very interesting and we loved sitting in their botanical garden area and watching the colorful birds. Great way to celebrate our 50th Anniversary!
    Dear Kathryn, Thank you so much for your glowing review! We're happy to hear that your visit to Cadushy Distillery was a memorable part of your 50th Anniversary celebration. It's wonderful to know that you enjoyed our spirits, especially the Rom Rincon, and that Yolanda could make your experience even more special. Our garden is indeed a great spot to relax and enjoy the local wildlife, and we're glad you took pleasure in it. We look forward to welcoming you back on your next trip to Bonaire. Cheers to many more celebrations! The Cadushy Team

    Wet your whistle at Cadushy Distillery
    Thank you to Marten at Cadushy Distillery for providing us with a tour and tasting after a long day driving and snorkeling through Washington-Slagbaai National Park. We were able to sample all of the liqueurs as well as several rums... delicious! Our kids enjoyed a Sprite while watching the birds and playing with the cats. All in all, a great way to wrap up the day.
    Thank you for your nice review. We are glad you and your family liked the visit!

We were welcomed when we arrived right away with a sample of cactus liquor. We then got a tour of the distillery and got to try all the flavours (one for each island). The grounds are beautiful and there are many birds to see and yellow shouldered parrots will come down to eat fruit. Luke and Jennifer were very kind and helpful. Thanks for a great visit!
