What to Expect

Discover how this new Costa Rican rum is produced here in Guanacaste and prepare your own rum infused bottle from a variety of fruits and spices.

In the middle of the grass fields of Guanacaste lies a hidden historical jewel knows as Hacienda El Viejo. It is surrounded by huge sugarcane crops and the most important river in the Blue Zone of Costa Rica, Rio Tempisque.

In this house dating more than 150 years and former home to presidents of both Costa Rica

and Nicaragua now comes the first Costa Rican Rum Experience – here in Guanacaste.

Prepare your senses as we experience the whole process of producing high quality Rum from our purest sugar cane. View the extracting and cooking of the sugar cane juice in an artisanal way, until you reach the distiller where you will get the first liquors offering the highest purity.

This experience awaits your taste buds, with the aged and improved flavors of the Sabandi

Rum in its quality oak barrels. Distilled on premises, it will boast its characteristics and flavors

with each sip.

Enjoy the end of the tour with a delicious cocktail made with this rich tasting Rum and the stunning views of the Hacienda El Viejo historical site.
