Rum Museum will reopen on January 4
The Havana Club Rum Museum, an iconic site of the famous Cuban spirit brand, will reopen its doors on January 4, after a forced closure for about 10 months due to the epidemiological situation caused by the new coronavirus.
According to the announcement published by the Havana Club website, the facility, located on the central Avenida del Puerto in Old Havana, will reopen under strict hygienic sanitary measures, with the guarantee of providing the visitor with an authentic experience, together with the history and present of The Cuban Rum.
Those who come to the museum will be able to taste the well-known Havana Club Aged 3 years, Havana Club 7 years and Havana Club Master Selection, among others, as well as enjoy cocktail workshops, tastings with high-end products and pairings.
According to Grethel Perdomo, head of the museum's commercial department, the tour will take place every 10 minutes to avoid crowds, with a local guide and in a group of no more than 15 people.
Upon arrival at the facility, the temperature of each visitor will be taken remotely and hands can be disinfected at the different stations with an alcoholic solution, she explained.
Museum staff will wear face shields and masks that must also be worn by visitors. The bar counter and the stair handrails, among other places, will be disinfected after each tour is finished. These measures respond to the requirements of national and international health and tourism organizations and are based on the experiences of other related institutions.
