What a fabulous place to visit! I was not a rum drinker but after trying a bit of all the rums they brought out...my favourites were: chocolate and Legendaryo! The Sugar, Rum and Cigar tour were definitely worth the money and time😁 Note: 2 bottles of rum cost us 18 cuc's!

They always give me samples, the details of the rum, its reputation, and its ranking with locals and tourists. The prices are the official published prices. They have a large inventory of the best brands, including the Havana Club at $1,700.00

It's a nicely preserved building, even has a bar and an old register. The women who work there were really lovely. You can try a number of different rums. Note -- everyone tells you rum is more expensive at the airport. I only checked the prices of two rums. They were NOT more expensive at the airport. So, you can... More

I had no idea there were so many different types of rum. We had the option to try about 18-20 different flavours. Very cool place!

Very small exhibit with neat models but not much for explanation. Liked the old library style of the rum on the store shelves with a moving ladder. Good spot to buy rum and other liquor but don't expect to spend much time there.
