Our guide, i forget his name, but was a very great informative guide. Had real great energy and was very helpful during the mixology tour. If i could book again to make more drinks, ill do it with that guy!! Had a lot of laughs. I strongly recommend this excursion to anyone who loves rum

We loved it from start to finish. Dennis was amazing and detailed. It was cool to see the making of rum and learn the history of the family behind it. We participated in the mixology course and I was the happiest lil drunk ever. It was so fun. They even offered us a free drink and we couldn’t even take it. I highly recommend this tour especially when visiting the rum capital of the world.

We did the mixology class, and it was so fun! The tour was really cool, with a mix of informational and funny anecdotes. The drinks we made (and the welcome drink) were all incredible, and I feel like I can really make those drinks back home. I would recommend the trip!

In the town of Bayamón, just 20 minutes from San Juan, Puerto Rico’s oldest rum producer continues to create his signature rum using a 19th-century technique. Ron del Barrilito’s rum distillery has achieved little notoriety in drinking circles far beyond the island’s borders. But in Puerto Rico, Roma have the most devoted fans.

It all started in the 1870s when Pedro Fernandez returned to his family’s hacienda after studying engineering in France. He came home with a passion for aged spirits and began experimenting with various rum recipes using the sugar cane grown around the estate. Fernandez settled on what is now known as the «three-star» variety («Tres Estrellas»), a rum aged from six to ten years in oak barrels that used to contain sherry. The drink had a fruity sweetness and a smoky aftertaste, which quickly found fans among the visitors of the hacienda. Since Fernandez served it from a small barrel, the guests began to ask for ron del barrilito (Spanish for «rum from a small barrel»). When in 1880 he decided to start selling alcohol, this nickname turned into an official name.

In 1920 Prohibition went into effect in the US, so the Ron del Barrilito distillery curtailed much of its commercial production and sold its rum only for medicinal purposes. After the abolition of Prohibition, Edmundo, son of Pedro, created a new variety, «two stars» («Dos Estrellas») — a drink aged from three to five years. The resulting rum was lighter in flavor than its predecessor and better suited to cocktails. Now there are two additional varieties, «four» and «five stars» («Cuatro» and «Cinco Estrellas»), which are aged up to 20 and 35 years respectively, and both are made for «sipping» rum: varieties aged so long are very strong and tart for use in cocktails or for quick drinking in piles.

The company no longer operates as a distillery: it purchases ready-made raw rum — some say from the nearby Bacardi winery — and then blends and ages it. However, the almost 140-year-old manufacturer firmly adheres to its traditions. A few years ago they created their website, and in 2019 they opened a tasting room. You can pre-book a tour that includes a story about the history of the hacienda, the process of making rum and a visit to the cask room. Be sure to ask to see the «barrel of freedom» filled at 1942 and closed until the full independence of Puerto Rico. The company says that on the day this happens, it will serve rum to everyone in the town square.

You can also taste all four varieties of rum in the tasting room. By purchasing a four-star variety, you will be able to fill your bottle from a cask, hand-write the label, dip it in wax, and add an official seal.

This Should be Your Choice for a Rum Tour in San Juan

Nov. 2022

My husband and I took this tour after a cruise. We were absolutely delighted with everything. The grounds are beautiful and the welcome center with tasting rooms, bar and gift shop are very attractive and inviting. Our tour guide, Mario, was extremely informative and obviously has a passion for rum and its history. The tasting was a five-star experience and the complimentary cocktail was perfection.

Great tour with history

Oct. 2022

I loved the heritage tour at Ron del barrilito. The tour came with a drink, and I got the Tu cafe — delicious! Christian was a great bartender & we chat while he made the drink. Valeria was my guide & she was great! I was the only one on the tour which meant I asked lots of questions. I loved that this is still a small business and still has family ties to the founder.

Came here for a tour with Valeria. Had an amazing time. She’s very knowledgeable and friendly and explained the history. I highly recommend coming here for an authentic Puerto Rican rum experience. Plus you’re supporting a smaller company versus a conglomerate (a la Bacardi).
The facility is very modern but has a lot of history. Definitely worth the money for the tour.
Also, Antonio tending bar was very friendly and helpful with beverage ideas. Thank you all!

Highly recommend, especially for real history and RUM lovers!

The BEST tour experience with Tim (tour guide) and Antonio (bartender)

Aug. 2022 • With friends

This was hands down the best Rum Tour! Tim was our Tour guide and he was very informative, professional, funny and had great resonance. Answered all questions that were asked. During the rum tasting, he made it fun, helps us accentuate the flavors we found in each tasting. The other best part of the tour was having our drinks made by Antonio. It was a great experience watching him explain how he was making the drinks. In the beginning he made us a Mi Vida and a Piña Colada. After the tour we went back to him and he made us a drink called El Remedio that was ABSOLUTELY delicious!!! Thanks Tim and Antonio for such a WONDERFUL experience, warm smiles, great conversation and laughs.

Amazing experience and impressive heritage!

Aug. 2022 • For two

We did the distillery and tasting tour. Valeria was our tour guide. Kind, friendly, patient and well informed on the whole process and was not fazed by our many questions.
Our bartender Antonio was incredibly skilled and super helpful. It was like watching him create art! He even gave us restaurant recommendations for local dinner spots post tour. He was a real delight and went above and beyond to make sure we were having a good time!
We enjoyed the whole experience and the price of the tour was well worth it!
