A Distillery and Farm in the Galápagos Highlands

A farmer in the highlands of Santa Cruz Island in Galápagos is known locally for his distilled sugarcane spirits. A Naturalist once told our group that if you’re ever suffering from a stomach bug, the best cure is to drink a glass of his moonshine and eat a spoonful of sand — the idea is that the parasites in your stomach get drunk and throw rocks at each other until they’re all dead.

In this short video, guests aboard National Geographic Endeavour get a tour of the farmer’s operation and sample his wares.
