  Casto's Special Rum
by TRimer

Visit the Fabrica de Ron Bocoy in Havana to see how rum is produced. This factory makes special rum for Castro (La Isla del Torso). The pope is also fond of this rum.

On the tour you can witness the entire process of making rum, from beginning to end. There were thousands of barrels that were in aging the molasses in the factory. At the end, you can sample different rums at the factory store.

Cda. del Cerro No. 1417

As was the case with the cigar factory tours, you will need to have your tour operator or hotel conceirge set this up for you.
