The Daiquiri is a classic cocktail from humble beginnings created over a hundred years ago by an American mining engineer named Jennings Cox. Working in the Cuban coast village of Daiquiri and needing something to lubricate and motivate the workforce before a hard day during hot months. He used Cuba’s three great natural resources limes sugar and Bacardi to create what we know today as the Daiquiri.

This guided rum tour is available from £40 per guest and includes four cocktails (Classic Daiquiri, Daw To The Dacha, Hemingway Daiquiri and Fresh Fraise Freeze), four shots of rum and light bites to compliment the experience.
