Definitely worth a visit!

Excellent experience. Rum tasting of 4 different runs (standard or premium). The owner is so friendly and tells you all about the rums, shows you a map and answers any questions. They also do a great fisherman’s poncha and yummy popcorn! Don’t miss out on this great experience

A Rum night out!
Jan 2020
I struggled to find this place even the locals were not aware of its existence. Roberto is a very knowledgeable, funny host. I had a fabulous time trying several different rums on his recommendation. Great music as well I will be back when I get over the hangover.

Having a Madeira poncha
Mar 2020
The Rum house is a great place for Madeiran poncha and Madeira Rum.
He also has Madeiran wine and other drinks -even non-alcoholic- although that is not the idea. The old building has a great atmosphere, but the welcoming atmosphere comes from the owner Roberto, who loves chatting in English and sharing his knowledge abut the right way to make Madeiran poncha. .
All the ponchos are made freshly when you order.

Great place!
Mar 2020 • Couples
Me and my boyfriend visited this place in the beginning of March, and it was amazing. The owner was super nice, told us so much history of rums, provided us with a great premium tasting, with Madeiran rum and also snacks that go with each rum, it was so tasteful. He also told us some history about cigars and helped us with making this amazing photo.

Great place with some nice rums
Dec 2019
Great place. Owner is friendly and offers plenty of advice on the various choices. Some nice rums. Also has wine and other local drinks, including the genuine fisherman's poncha, freshly made. Mid week December, and not overcrowded so plenty of space to sit. Great owner who makes you feel welcome and having spent some time here presented a fantastic photo since he used to be photographer. Genuine nice bloke. Will definitely visit again. Thanks again.

Rum Tasting
Nov 2019 • Solo
Nice little place with some excellent rum and very friendly staff! There are two different types of rum tastings, a basic one and a premium one. We tried the premium one with some rare and limited edition rums along with little food tasters to complement the rums. Very good experience here!

A nice little place without prestige for thoose who doesn’t know much about rum.

We stopped by for a drink after dinner. Friendly service and good time sipping the cocktail listening to good music. Well worth visiting.

Great poncha and rum choice
Oct 2019
We spent there almost every night of our stay in Funchal (missed just one). Best poncha we tasted in Funchal and great choice of rum, everyone perfectly described and explained. Relaxed atmosphere with blues and jazz soundtrack. After 8 days of tasting i choosed two bottles of rum to take home: one to try poncha at home and a bottle of my favourite among the tastings. Highly recommended.

Rum heaven
Sep 2019 • Solo
I dropped in for a coffee and digestif after leaving a restaurant nearby. There is a huge selection of rums, bigger than in any hotel bar or airport shop. The owner is friendly and knowledgeable, and interested in what rums you have tried... etc. I wish that I could have stayed longer.
