    Duty Free Gin

    Hello everyone,

    We will be making our first trip to Aruba next month. This is my first post but have been looking at the forum for a few weeks now and found lots of great info. All my research says to purchase alcohol at the Aruba duty free before leaving the airport. Can anybody tell me what brands of gin they carry? I am a fan of Hendricks but also like Bombay.

    Thanks in advance,

    hi and welcome to the aruba.com community forum.
    we are not gin drinkers, so cannot comment as I never noticed gin at the duty free.
    (I am sure there is gin but I go right to the baileys and coconut rum)

    you may find a BETTER selection at your home airport Duty Free shop, so check there first.

    again, welcome to the posting side!

    We just returned from a aruba and my SIL bought Tito’s Vodka at the Duty free shop upon our arrival on the way in. They seem to have most major brands of alcohol at good prices so I’m sure you will find Hendricks (which I also like) at that shop. Have a great time!

    Their selection is limited and half the time their inventory is depleted. Two of our last four trips they were out of Bacardi superior. Do as Andrea suggests.

    Also, Lings and Superfood grocery stores both have a great selection of all liquors. There is also a sticky at the top of "Shopping" discussing liquor prices.
