Latin America is as well known for its rum production as it is for its rum consumption. A tour of the Flor de Cana Rum Factory offers travelers the perfect way to capitalize on both, with an informative guide who offers up details about the production process and a tasting room to sample some of this strong spirit.
Visitors will have the chance to tour the vault, where rum is slow aged, walk through the rum barrel operation area and relax during a video presentation that highlights every aspect of Flor de Cana’s unique process. The tour concludes with a chance to sip on the local product, as well as a stop in the gift shop, museum and rum bar (for those who’d like to drink a little more).
Flor de Cana is located in Chichigalpha, just outside the city of Leon. Tours take place daily and last approximately one hour. Most travelers choose to arrange tours with organizations that also provide transport to this popular destination.
