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.

  • This was better than we expected. The property and scenery are beautiful. The outdoor bar area had an amazing view of old San Juan with a nice breeze on a hot day. We had an 11 year old with and weren’t sure how he would like it, but he loved it! I highly recommend the Historical tour for couples or families. Very affordable as well. The gift shop is not your typical gift shop- Lots of great items to take back home. Our favorite were the engraved bottles. We filled one bottle ourselves which was a really cool experience. We highly recommend this tour and would go back!

  • The history of how it all began and the story told was amazing. To see how it made and to actually touch the equipment and then to read up on it again was amazing. You pass through a hall that has various types of rum and how long they have been aging and you can smell them. The gift shop was crazy awesome and you could taste the different rums..

  • Good experience. We paid for the tasting tour and it was interesting and fun as well. The mixed drinks and coconuts were so tasty. Word of advice, if you decide to do the tasting tour make sure you don't go on an empty stomach since the amount of the rums you are tasting are pretty decent size. This building does have Wifi which it is always a plus. Staff was extremely helpful and kind, always with a smile.

  • Tour can be hit or miss, depending on your guide, and the drink line in the pavilion can get a little long and slow. But it's a beautiful property and the rum making process is really neat, and the drinks are great. I recommend getting tickets in advance on the web site if you want a guaranteed spot for a certain time, otherwise you may need to hang out and have a couple drinks before the next tour... Which isn't terrible, all things considered.

  • Such a beautiful location! Enjoyed the history tour and information on the Bacardi process and history, plus the included drinks and glasses are fantastic! Highly recommend.
