Go if you love rum

Tells a story of rum production. Our excursion included 10 small shots of rum, chocolate, vanilla, sweet, crème, dark and light. Best not to drive

We, as most people are here, were on a tour that included this. Yes, we tried lots of different rums. The young lady who took us round was stunning, worth the trip just to see her !

This store is quite big and well stocked with the domestic rum. In fact I have never known of the existence of some of these rums. Staff is knowledgeable and helpful. My only complaint (and it has nothing to do with House of Rum) that Havana Club 7-year old is now sold only in cardboard boxes that makes it 4-CUC... More

House of Rum in Varadero is a really nice store. They have some really rare and unique gift ideas. We bought some chocolate and it was super good!

Good prices, large selection. There is a 100 year old rum and a 80 year rum worth the look at. No tastes on them available (to bad). There is a little tasting area of the main floor for sampling

Good selection and some of the best prices for cigars and rum in Varadero (although there was a store in downtown that had rum at good prices). If you want to take some rum home with you prices are lower here than at the duty free in the airport.

I first visited the store on a trip into Varadero. There's big model as you enter which looks interesting but is roped off so there's no chance to get close or find out about rum production. Moving into the building there's lots of cases of rum laying around before you get the counter. The women working in the store were... More

Nice small rum factory. They sell all kinds of rum. You can go inside and try anything. Cheap rum, to expensive rum. I liked it very much and purchased a few bottles. Nice place for a few photo ops too.
