The Distillery

The Cadushy Distillery is the only distillery on Bonaire. The distillery is located in the former Party-center and Cinelandia Cinema with surrounding garden now called Plasa Cadushy. Eric and Jolande Gietman bought the ruins of the Party-center in 2010 and it took them five years to completely restore all the buildings.

Have you ever tried drinking a cactus?

In The Cadushy Distillery you can see how the world’s only liqueur made from cactus is created. You will learn about the distilling process of the Cadushy of Bonaire Liqueur. And, of course, you will be educated about the production process of our other Dutch Caribbean Liqueurs and the stronger stuff The Spirit of Bonaire.

After the educational part we invite you to taste some of our products… or all. All Island Liqueurs are based on the traditions of the Dutch Caribbean Islands. Taste some and learn some about the history of these Islands at the same time. Can it get any better? Yes, taste The Spirit of Bonaire and learn about the High Spirits of Bonaire; Captain Don, Rincón, Kaomati and of course the Kadushi cactus.

The Cadushy Promise: authentic products, artisan production, responsible and sustainable sourced, tasty traditional flavors. If you are looking for truly unique products that are made in small batches by a team of artisan professionals, then you are on the right place at The Cadushy Distillery

With our informative tour & tasting, our passionate team and our exclusive products and souvenirs you can immerse yourself in the true spirit of Bonaire!
