The Rum Tasting Experience
Prepare your senses as we experience the whole process of producing high quality Rum from our sugar cane of the Guanacaste roots.
In the middle of the grass fields of Guanacaste lies a hidden historical jewel knows as Hacienda El Viejo. It is surrounded by huge sugarcane crops and the most important river in the Blue Zone of Costa Rica, Rio Tempisque.
In this house dating more than 150 years and former home to presidents of both Costa Rica and Nicaragua now comes the first Costa Rican Rum Experience – here in Guanacaste.
Connect with the earth and the richness of the Guanacaste roots. Prepare your senses as we experience the whole process of producing high quality Rum from our purest sugar cane. View the extracting and cooking of the sugar cane juice in an artisanal way, until you reach the distiller where you will get the first liquors offering the highest purity.
This experience awaits your taste buds, with the aged and improved flavors of the Sabandi Rum in its quality oak barrels. Distilled on premises, it will boast its characteristics and flavours with each sip.
