Great place to buy rum

Price and selection of rums is great. Cheaper than duty free and fabulous selection to chose from. They also let you sample different rums so you know what they taste like prior... read more

This tour was very informative and you got to see how they squeezed the sugar cane from the stick. Also they cut it and you got to suck on a piece of sugar cane. Then went around the factory and received free rum. Also took a train ride through the back of the towns and then a bus ride back... More

We had researched the "House of Rum" before we went to on our vacation to Cuba and it looked like a fun spot. It certainly was. The staff couldn't be more help, especially with plenty of samples of all the rums they have. Reasonable price also compared with what we saw around the area. A must stop when there.

Every Cuban rum you can find and free samples...bring cash as the credit card machine is horribly slow

Nice Rum tasting :) Nicely located :) Price a usually higher than the rum at the airport. You have all the same choice at the duty free of the airport, so a suggest to wait at the end of you vacation to buy your bottle.

You can taste several types of rum or simply have a drink in the bar. You can buy rum, tabbaco, cigarettes, sereval licor liquor and even candy. Also, you can see a exhibition to learn how the rum are made.

A really cool little rum shop stocked to the rafters with different types of rum. There is a beautiful model of the old distillery in one annex, and a beautifully old dinghy bar in the other illuminated in a rainbow of colours by the stained glass. They do give samples but only of the cheapest rum, you probably have more... More

great selection from $10 to $5000 bottles, don't think your going to taste the $5000 bottle cause your not, but all the regular $10 to $20 bottles you can taste to help you decide which one you like best. Worth the side trip.
