In our country we are lucky to have rums of great excellence. In 2015, the World Spirits Competition designated one of Colombia’s rums as the best in the world. This experience is an excellent adventure for rum’s lovers. Discover Cartagena By Locals  invites you to experience the rich flavor of Colombia through its rum.

If we talk about rums, Colombia has definitely managed to position itself as a world-class distillery. Three or four years ago, Colombia was the ugly duckling of this Caribbean industry. But history changed when a handful of entrepreneurs woke up and saw Colombia's potential to be a serious competitor in the marketplace. That's the reason we have designed an amazing experience in alliance with one of the most famous bars in the city to allow you to discover the flavors  of the best Colombian rums.

After meeting in a local bar, we will welcome you with a cocktail based on rum. Our rum expert will  teach you about the history of rum and its origin from sugar cane. You will try fresh sugar cane and its juice rich in minerals. After this, you will allow to learn about fermentation and distillation process using a copper pot to get this famous beverage.  Then using spices, fruits and nuts we learn about the aromas  and flavors that make unique a good rum. We will finish trying 5 of the best Colombian rums.

¡Be ready for this sensorial experience. !
