Cadushy Bonaire Distillery

Postby Islandboy85 » Mon Apr 23, 2012 7:32 pm

I got back from my honeymoon/1 year anniversary to the island of Bonaire where I grew up. If you are a scuba diver you absolutely must visit. Anyway, we visited the Cadushy distillery on the north end of the island. The owner and operator of the distillery is one of he nicest layed back guy you'll meet. Part of the money from purchasing liquors from them are donated back to help the community. Not a bad thing at all. The primary liquor they make comes from the cadushy cactus that is dried and soaked in a neutral spirit made from maishi - local sorghum. There are other flavors there. The Cadushy and Orange are my favorite, but the others are all just amazing. If you make it to Bonaire you must also go to City Cafe and have their Cadushy Mojito. It's soooo much better than a regular Mojito. Well here are some pictures of the place. Enjoy, and let me know if you ever visit. Oh, sorry it's just links to the pictures, but my iPad is acting funny.

Looks like a very nice Hoga still.
Distill safe. Make good cuts. Enjoy yourself. Give as much as you take. Have fun doing this incredibly hard work. Be a good example. It's your hobby.
