5 dollars for anyone that knows where Havana Club is made.
If you say it’s from the States then I’m going to smack and kick your ass!
Although I can’t blame my American friends. There is another brand also called Havana Club being sold in the States, owned by Bacardi Rum.
TALK MORE ABOUT THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BARACDI RUM AND HAVANA CLUB RUM AND THE HSITORY AND HOW WE GOT HEREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
But as we all know, Havana Club is a Cuban rum. Therefore, in Choi’s humble opinion, the Havana Club from Cuba is the REAL Havana Club.
Bascially, Choi says US Havana Club is NOT as authentic as Cuba Havana club!
Okay? Get it?
Since Choi loves a good Pina Colada, it was only natural that we go visit Havana Club Rum Museum!
Havana Club Rum Museum
The Havana Club Rum Museum takes you back to its origins (i.e. history), where it came from (was founded in Cuba), who founded the rum (Arechabala family), and how rum is produced.
Fantastic experience, which was multiplied 10 fold as I had a contact at the Havana Club company, and thus there were able to set up a private tour for us!
We started the tour with a free drink.
Because that’s the best way to start a tour.
Although………it was quite early in the day (like 11AM)…
After downing our drink, our private tour guide brought us to this model of a steam locomotive. Apparently, Cuba was the first country in Latin America to transport sugar cane via the use of trains.
Why Sugar Canes?
You need it to make rum smart ass!
Anyhow – this is the model of the trains and the production sites of Havana Club rum:
After 15 minutes in the museum, we were brought to the main event.
FREE BOTTLES OF RUM!
My favorite was the Havana Club 15. Why?
Because its fucking 15 years aged.
Loved our tour here, thank you for bringing us around miss tour guide!
