Distillery Tour and Tasting

Nearly a century ago, Carlos de Aldecoa Bueno’s grandfather started a coffee business in Spain, expanding his enterprise to the fertile soils of Veracruz, Mexico.

In 1998, De Aldecoa family bought the then memorable Uncle Ben’s Rice manufacturing facility on Clinton Drive. Now the facility has been turned into a world-class coffee plant and distillery, expanding the beverage imperium with the creation of Gulf Coast Distillers.
