This place has a lot of kinds of liquors. You can buy cigarettes and cigars, too. I bought honey and it was delicious. Some prices of the liquors could be lower at the duty free store at the airport. For example, I bought Cubita Licor de Cafe for 10.80 CUC and at the airport I saw it for 6.50 CUC.

Every selection of Havana Club you can ask for. Free samples and a bar in the back. Great place, friendly staff. Right at the beginning of the Varadero strip, 66th and first or somewhere close to that. Old model inside of the old rum factory and all kinds of old fashioned tools and accessories.

We were in a bit of a hurry and didn't have time to wait for the presentation being set up so the rating might have been higher had we been able to do so. However, we were really impressed by the variety of rums available in the shop, all of which could be tasted, and we were really surprised at... More

Dropped in here on a rainy day after visiting a neighbouring cigar shop. The selection was incredible and the staff knowledgable. Lots of premium rum here, and all of the usual suspects in ample supply. Great shop.

Our group visited here last week and really enjoyed all the free tastings. Some of us were going to buy the Havana Club 7 year, but were told that the Legendario was just as good. It tasted just as good, and apparently cannot be bought outside of Cuba, so we went with that even though it was the same price... More

A great store to try different rums before you buy.The lady at the counter just kept pouring tasters. When you walk out with your rum and a good buzz. Good tunes at the front door too!! Nice atmosphere.
