Bacardí Visitor Center Re-Opens In Puerto Rico

November 7, 2017

Casa Bacardí visitor center, one of Puerto Rico’s top tourism attractions, has reopened as of November 1.

While the Casa Bacardí campus suffered minor damage during Hurricane Maria, the largest premium rum distillery in the world is leading the charge in recovery and rebuilding. The landscaping is showing signs of recovery and the views of the El Morro Fort and San Juan Bay are as spectacular as ever.

“Tourism is an essential industry for Puerto Rico. As the island rebuilds, we look forward to welcoming visitors with warm hospitality, cold cocktails, and stories of overcoming adversity, innovation, perseverance and celebration,” says Wesley Cullen, General Manager. “We are here to support the industry and are very happy to reopen Casa Bacardí for tourist and locals.”

Casa Bacardi Reopens

Casa Bacardí Puerto Rico has been welcoming visitors since 1961. During the weeks following Hurricane Maria, the visitor center was temporarily closed as its staff remained focused on providing relief to the community as part of the “Bacardi Contigo” [Bacardi is With You] initiative.

As part of the Bacardi ongoing commitment to Puerto Rico relief and rebuilding efforts, $5 of each tour admission will be donated to relief organizations, through the end of the year.

The “Historical” tour starts with a cocktail overlooking the bay to El Morro Fort, then a guided tour to discover how Bacardí rum is made and the family-owned company’s history of craft and innovation. The “Historical” tour is $15 [plus sales tax] and includes a welcome cocktail and commemorative cup.

The “Rum Tasting” tour is $49.99 and includes a welcome cocktail and commemorative cup.

The “Mixology” tour is the opportunity to master the mojito. This interactive tour puts visitors behind the bar as a Bacardí rum specialist leads guests through mixing three classic Bacardí rum cocktails, after a visit to the distillery and tour of the history of the most awarded rum in the world. The “Mixology” Tour is $59.99 and includes a welcome cocktail and commemorative cup.

In the retail shop, visitors enjoy the very popular “Self-Fill Experience,” where guests fill, seal and label their own bottle of special rum, exclusively available at Casa Bacardí, directly from the barrel.
