Discover the history of one of the world’s most well-known rum brands at Casa Bacardí Sitges, a museum in the birthplace of Casa Bacardí’s founder, Don Facundo Bacardí Massó. Learn about the rum production process, immerse yourself in a cocktail making class, or enjoy a drink in the Bacardí Lounge Bar.
Casa Bacardí Sitges holds guided tours of the Heritage Hall, the Rum Making Hall, and the Bacardí Lounge Bar throughout the day with guides who speak Catalan, Spanish, and English. These tours tend to fill up fast, so check schedules and book admission in advance to guarantee entry.
Travelers keen for a more hands-on experience can attend a cocktail-making workshop, which is held on the final Friday of every month. Learn how to make nine cocktails, then choose two to attempt yourself before sampling the fruits of your labor.
