Nothing says beach vacation like a tropical drink. And what do piña coladas, mojitos, and mai tais all have in common? Rum! Luckily, there is more than one fabulous Key West rum distillery with a tasting room. After a day on one of the world-famous Key West beaches by 1800 Atlantic All Florida Keys Property Management, head into town for the best rum tasting in Florida. Here are the can’t-miss spots on our island.
This Key West rum distillery is a local favorite. They make everything from white rum to spiced rum, and all of their flavors are delicious. In addition to those sweet libations, Key West First Legal Rum Distillery also makes chocolates and baked goods. So, after your rum tasting, mojito-making lesson, or free tour, bring some chocolates back to your luxurious rental condo for a late-night snack.
Papa’s Pilar Rum is a Key West classic. This Key West distillery is owned by the Ernest Hemingway family and named after the famous author’s boat. It’s a great place to stop after a visit to the Hemingway House. They donate much of the proceeds to local and international causes. Although they have fewer rums than First Legal for you to taste, the quality and flavor are just as good. Plus, their website features recipes for you to try making in your kitchen at your Hemingway condo.
Key West Distilling’s Key West distillery closed, but they’re still on our list because they’re just moving to the neighboring Stock Island. In addition to rum, they make vodka, whiskey, and gin. So, if one of your travel partners isn’t a big rum fan, Key West Distilling has something for them. A complete Key West rum distillery tour includes a rum tasting at all three of these fabulous companies.
