Our beers

Beer is the oldest alcoholic beverage in the world. The brewing process used today can be traced back as far as ancient Egypt.

Every region in the world has it’s own favorite brew, and the Balashi and Chill brands reach both local and visitors alike.

Producing over 30,000 Hectoliters annually, or rather more than 14 MILLION bottles … the ‘National Brewery Balashi’ seeks to expand production and distribution wherever good taste is in demand, exporting to our neighboring islands Bonaire and Curaçao on its quest to conquer more preference for this Caribbean brew.

Soft drinks made in Aruba

The first marketed soft drinks in the Western World appeared back in the 17th Century. They were made of water and lemon juice, sweetened with honey. Then in the late 18th century, scientists made important progress in replicating naturally carbonated mineral waters, now known as ‘soda water’, which is the major and defining component of most soft drinks.

‘Tropical’ has been produced since 1949, holding a strong position in the local soft drink market in Aruba. We have a wide variety of natural flavors, derived from fruits, nuts, berries, roots, herbs and other (plant) sources.
