Bottle Your Own BACARDI

This is a special hands-on experience where you can hand-fill your bottle directly from our on-site barrel.

First, you’ll decide how you’d like to engrave your custom-made bottle. Then, you’ll get started filling your bottle with Special Reserve double aged rum. This rum carries the notes of vanilla, almond, hazelnut, and butterscotch. Finally, you’ll seal the bottle with signature red wax and personalize the label with your name. This experience takes just 20 minutes and is guided by a specialist.

Highlights of the Bottle Your Own BACARDI experience Include:

  • A full-size bottle of Special Reserve rum only available the BACARDI factory
  • A unique padded box to preserve your bottle
  • Recording your name and bottle number in the registry
  • Photo of you and your bottle in front of the numbered barrel at Casa BACARDÍ
