Casa Bacardi - Review
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.

Casa Bacardi, San Juan Reviews
They start you out with a rum drink under their bat shaped gazebo while you wait for the tram to take you around the property to where the tour starts. A guide walks you through, and after a short, interesting movie about the start of the family business, you get to go from room to room seeing how the rum is made, smelling the various brands, until you end up at the Art Deco bar, and finally the gift shop. A unique gift is a specialty bottle of rum that they engrave with anything you want. We've been looking for a "statement" bottle, to be drunk only on special occasions, and we found it, with our family name engraved in gold.
Excellent experience. Show up you get a souvenir cups a welcome drink. You get to sample to high end rum only available for purchase at that location and no where else. MAKE SURE YOU GO AFTER EATATING A MEAL! As you can imagine the is a good amount of alcohol that you will consume. On a trip to PR this place is a must visit if you like Rum.
We LOVED the Rum Tasting tour! Check in was simple, and the welcome drinks were an awesome added touch. The rum tasting tour offered both history, and a great tasting lesson! The gift shop prices were also decent. We had a ball here and would love to come again
We had a great time doing the tour and mixology class! The setting was nice and enjoyed the food before the tour. Gift shop on site with all kinds of stuff including easy to travel rum cakes. I gave as a gift and it got rave reviews.
If the tour offered by Bacardi can impress a non-alcoholic person like us, it would definitely be worth a visit for anyone! It is not time consuming. If you have car, you can park it at the parking lot and the tour has their own trolley which takes you around. The tour itself is fun and the guides are super dedicated and knowledgeable. One of the best attractions of San Juan, must visit.
