What a great experience this was, not only do you learn about how rum is actually made but on the differences between them. The next part is where it gets really interesting when you get to try the different rums. From the one that will set fire to your throat right through the whole gambit of different rums till you...

Great selection of pretty much any Rum you may want. Not what we expected from other reviews. We were a little disappointed.

This place has a lot of kinds of liquors. You can buy cigarettes and cigars, too. I bought honey and it was delicious. Some prices of the liquors could be lower at the duty free store at the airport. For example, I bought Cubita Licor de Cafe for 10.80 CUC and at the airport I saw it for 6.50 CUC.

Every selection of Havana Club you can ask for. Free samples and a bar in the back. Great place, friendly staff. Right at the beginning of the Varadero strip, 66th and first or somewhere close to that. Old model inside of the old rum factory and all kinds of old fashioned tools and accessories.

We were in a bit of a hurry and didn't have time to wait for the presentation being set up so the rating might have been higher had we been able to do so. However, we were really impressed by the variety of rums available in the shop, all of which could be tasted, and we were really surprised at... More

Large selection of rums. They let you taste the different types. Good place to get your rum. There is a little display when you go in and also a small bar if you wish to sit and have a drink
