The legacy of one man which has now become a personal and party favourite alcohol, ‘Bacardi’ was born here. Don Facundo Bacardi Masso immigrated to Santiago de Cuba in 1830 and set up a business as a wine merchant. After a few years of experimenting he and his brother set up a local distillery. Their experimentation led them to create a new type of rum which was much lighter and it quickly became a local favourite. The museum shows the process in detail of how various types of alcohol is made whilst providing an insight into the history of the company. They also offer free samples of pure rums and cocktails.

Our first time in PR, how can you not do a tour of Bacardi?! I highly recommend the Distillery Taste Tour. We learned at lot of the history behind the name and more about rum during our tasting than just googling it. Our guide was amazing and well spoken. He also had a great sense of humor. Highly recommend buying any specialized rum in their gift shop. There was one we thought we could just buy at the airport. We were so wrong.
If you like rum, you have to stop at Casa Bacardi when in Puerto Rico! I've been here a number of times, and the tour has changed quite a bit. Even with the new tour building, it's still a fun time. You learn a lot about the Bacardi family and their signature rum. Enjoy the free drinks!
I've done the rum sampling your twice now. Was very pleased that each time provided a unique experience. Jose was the guide each time and each time I learned so much and saw different parts of the factory and process. Of course the tasting at the end was the best part. I do wish the experience was long and incorporated more rum, but definitely worth going once if not twice!
This is one of the best attractions in San Juan, if you're a drinker. If you are not, don't go. Get there a little before the next tour and enjoy a couple drinks on the Bacardi patio. The bar only takes tokens which you purchase at the ticket counter, fyi: you get a free souvenir cup with each drink and I have a set of 4. Definitely pay a bit extra and get the tour w/ the tasting. It is very worthwhile. The tour itself is fun and the guides are super dedicated and knowledgeable. The tasting is fantastic, you will get 5 healthy pours of rum on a spectrum of quality, but mostly higher end. Delicious. You will leave this place feeling just fine. For good measure I recommend one more drink at the patio before heading back to the airbnb.
We went on the run tasting tour and it was awesome! Mike was great and very knowledgeable tour guide, thank you! The rum tasting was very cool but I would suggest getting your free drink and maybe another before the tour starts to warm yourself up a bit unless you're use to sipping spirits. The Bacardi distillery is a must when visiting Puerto Rico!
