Craft Rum or Sugar Producers in Cuba and Puerto Rico

Recommended Posts

I am headed to Cuba and Puerto Rico in November. Does anyone have any rum distilleries, sugar producers or suppliers they would recommend visiting?

I would say avoid the Bacardi tour. The other distillery in San Juan didn't have tours operating. The Bacardi tour is fake. Honestly the best part was hanging out on Condado Beach. Costco is a good place to stock up on booze and food. Cuba was a lot more interesting. Actually, Old San Juan was great too.

Thanks for the reply, I did the Bacardi tour over 10 years ago. It was indeed fake, like taking the Hershey chocolate "tour".  Looks like Barrilito & SolTaino is the short list...

Exactly. They take you to a fake museum and nowhere near the distillery.

Barralito was closed to tours when I went: Currently, we are closed for visits due to construction on site.  We are building a Visitor Center that should be available in January when we will have the facilities for tours. 

Sorry for the inconvenience,

Edmundo B. Fernández, Inc.
