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
Touring Casa Bacardi was incredibly fun and informative. The prices were very reasonable $15 for the tour including a free drink and souvineer (plastic) glass. The people were friendly and the rum was good. It's also a great place to try a sipping rum only available on PR for $13 that comes with a fancy glass. Highly recommend to any vacationers!
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.
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
This tour was fantastic. Best mojito I've ever had! The gift shop was fun too :0)
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.
