Was included with our city tour so it was actually ok. Quick history is given to you before entering (family owned business/in business since the 1800's/now a rich family yadayadayada).
We walked on a catwalk through a packaging factory and basically just saw workers hanging around watching the machinery. Then we were lead to the store where they had samples for you to try. The prices there seemed to be reasonable starting at $3 a bottle. Good stop to pick up a few bottles but calling it an actual rum factory tour was a bit off.

We went as part of a cab tour. It was neat to see. Nothing too thrilling but fun. I enjoyed the tasting after and bought some rum. Best prices we saw for rum as well!

Part of the city tour, very interesting to see how the rum is made. Bought some rum from the shop very cheap.

I thought that we would have a chance to see how the Brugal was made and the machines they used but it was a different experience

Although I enjoyed my self it was not what I expected. We walked up to the factory we were told about the companies history and hope the rum is made then we walk inside the factory and we are on a bridge where we can see down stairs were all the machines are and the workers then we continue to walk into a show room where you can buy the Brugal and the tour is over , not very exciting but the prices of the rum are great definitely worth buy at the factory then outside plus they let you try about 4 different rum which was a plus

We visited the factory as part of a half day city tour of Puerto Plata. Although not terribly exciting, it was intersting to see a modern mechanised factory at work. We had our teens with us on the tour and it was nice to show them “behind the scenes.” You’re not allowed to take any pictures inside the operational part of the factory unfortunately. After viewing the factory you go through the gift shop. My husband enjoyed tasting and comparing the various types of rum they sell and I enjoyed the air conditioning. We had decided not to buy any of the rum while we there, but we were sorry later to find the same bottles at the airport for almost double the price. And for those wondering...yes there’s washrooms – nice ones in fact.
