This is the place where you can taste all of the local liqueurs. Make sure to purchase these on site, The airports do not have everything you'll want and we certainly can't find what we loved back in the states unfortunately!

We stopped here to do some tasting and shopping as part of our tour from the Carnival Vista. They have a free tasting bar with a very wide range of liqueurs made from fruit (passionfruit, pineapple, blackberry,etc.). They also have sweets, and gift shop items. They also have a restroom.

Sampled aniseed and pineapple liquers on quick tour stop - very smooth and mellow. Minis are well-priced at 2.5 and 5 euros - with bottles at 10-15 euros.

Rather tucked away, but we found this place on our way down from Lagoa do Fogo, by following a couple of signs. The distillery building and grounds are very attractive, but there didn't appear to be any tours of the actual facility. Very nice gift shop area and the gentleman at the (free) tasting bar was very friendly and generous.... More

Nice factory with tasty liquors. Especially the passion fruit liquor was our favourite. Nice for a shot stop when you drive by.

If you can find the main square where the theater is in Ribeira Grande, you're steps away from the Mulher de Capote tasting area. Sample delicious liquors made in São Miguel. Keep in mind however, that in order to bring some home you'll have to get 4 bottles and have them seal it for you and check it as oversized... More

This place is well worth a visit not least because it can be a quick stop if you wish but a very interesting and worthwhile one. If you’re view of liquors is overly sweet, synthetic sticky or chemically then you’ll probably fall back in love with them here. There’s so many to choose from. We bought enough to fill the... More

Just passed by without planning to visit so we stopped anyway. You are surrounded by fruit flavours while discovering the barrels before getting to the actual tasting area. So many different flavours ! Loved the milk and caramel liquor.
