This is a great place to go and have a relaxing Cuba Libre and sample other flavours of rum and liqueurs. It has a great ambiance and is located on the main avenue. They also have a wide variety of rum and liqueurs available for purchase. Service was quite friendly helpful and knowledgeable.

They arent cheap with the samples in this place.I went in at 10am and had a pretty good buzz going by the time I left.The prices are pretty much the same as anywhere but the staff is very friendly.

We visited following a lecture in cigar making just across the road. All part of a pre-booked excursion. Very good room sized timeline and modelling of the story of rum in Cuba. Following the educational bit you get to try around 20 different rums in quick succession and can then purchase whatever you like. Hilarious!

Not really helpful staff besides you can try some liquor. There is a nice mini replica of a rhum factory but you can hardly get to it... Like a lot of things in Cuba, it is not kept in good shape and stuff can be really unfriendly, sad...

The staff at the rum store were very pleasant and helpful. They offered us numerous samples and we're very knowledgeable on the various rums they had to offer. They also had Cuban coffee and cigars for sale. The coffee was awesome! The front part of the store is like a museum and is very interesting. Definitely worth a look even... More

If you are going to Varadero, you must stop here, if for nothing else at least the free rum tastings. They have many flavors to taste. The staff are very friendly. They have an amazing stock of different liqueurs and spirits. They are located at the beginning of the avenue as you enter the town of Varadero.
