This is a great place to come buy all different types of Cuban ron and liqueurs. The staff handing out the free samples are very friendly and encourage you to try as many as you can and no issue when I asked to try a more expensive ron in their selection. One of the samples was a cream ron called... More

If you are a Rum fan then it is worth dropping and sampling the different types of rum made in Cuba. No advantage to buy here but does have a. Good selection, as price is controlled by the government and is the same everywhere. I bought Havana Club "the Ritual", that is made for the European market to make their... More

Great place, at the beginning of Varadero (coming from the Resorts) to buy your rum. They give you samples of the rum that is not made for export (i.e. for local use) and tell you all about the different kinds of rums. Since the government regulates prices, they are the same all around. There is a cigar store next door.

Excellent place to try all different kinds of Rums and liquers (and for free) . The staff is very friendly and hand you samples of your choices from the whole stock except the very old brands (15 years & older). There is also a bar and a nice model (scale ??) of an old rum factory.

You must stop here and try all the wonderful samples before you buy. The staff is wonderful and will offer you lots of samples. We always buy the Legendario, which is a great sipping rum. I also tried several liqueurs and ended up buying three tropical ones. A place one must visit when in Varadero. Just off the main street... More

Seriously they will give you repeated samples of everything, hoping that you will either love it and buy lots, get a little drunk and buy lots, or feel bad about getting so many samples and buy something whether you want it or not. :p

We are fans of cuban rum, it's the main reason we went to Cuba on holiday, visiting the house of rum is a must to taste different rums and decide which ones to bring home

I have been to Varadero 9 times and I will keep going till I die. So if you are looking to bring rum back home. I strongly recomend you to buy them over here. I found the price is good over here and they have so many selections to choose from. So If you do buy them over here. Cheers/

All you can sample rum from all over Cuba at (by Canadian standards) incredibly cheap prices. Have fun and it's a good thing cabs are cheap to get back to your resort because you may not be walking straight after you visit!
