Find out why Puerto Rico is the Rum Capital of the world on this adults only immersive rum experience. You will start off by foot in the historic city of Old San Juan and encounter unique, tucked away bars that locals frequent. Grab a seat at the bar, kick back and enjoy the show as your bartender provides a live demo, preparing one of your rum cocktails. 

After quenching your thirst with a refreshing drink, continue your drinking tour to a panoramic lookout point where you can admire and learn about the world’s largest rum distillery from your knowledgeable guide. Continue on to stroll through 18th century plazas and cobblestone streets, making your way to round two to one of San Juan’s favorite speakeasies. You’ll be treated to an exclusive off-the-menu rum cocktail, crafted just for this tour! Cap off the night at the third spot with another unique cocktail featuring one of Puerto Rico’s most popular brands of rum (hint: not Bacardi!).
