We visited this place based on TripAdvisor rating, but did not see the craze with it. I went there with friends and we tried 5 different drinks. True, they have a large amount of ingredients, but they drinks were average. I did not see what made them special, as the rating would indicate. I visited other places in Barcelona with... More

Well this was an amazing find. We needed somewhere to stop for a drink before dinner, and ducked in here, only to find the most amazing collection of home flavoured rums. the owner was a lovely chap, very chatty, and clearly very passionate about rum! Had a couple of drinks, went for dinner, then came back and had a couple... More

My wife and I loved this place, we sipped (too easily) four rum cocktails each and they were all delicious (apart from the chocolate/milk one avoid that!) but even when we said it wasn't to our taste he changed it for us. It's got a great casual atmosphere with lots of travellers. Fantastic and worth a visit to set you... More

Amazing bar. This guy knows his stuff. Home infused Rum made into really great cocktails accompanied by top notch bar food. Try the basil rum and chicken nachos. Go early to get some time talking to the owner about his passion and experimental approach to drinks.

The ideal is cool but I think that the infused rum flavors where a little too light. I tried three different drinks (cucumbers, ginger, and lychee) and they were all mediocre. They also ran out of a lot of flavors too which was a bummer

Dear Kristie, Our rum is 100% naturally infused. No additives, no artificial flavours. We offer a natural product and that's what our clients are normally looking for. We are sorry to hear that you weren't able to appreciate our macerations, but the real macerated rum is just never as strong as you were probably expecting. Another important fact is that... More
