El Ron de Cuba
  Shaped by Cuban climate, geography, history, and people, rum is an essential part of the nation’s culture. As its finest expression, the Havana Club range represents this rich heritage. It is the true spirit of Cuba.
The Cuban Heritage
Our story
Havana Club – El Ron de Cuba
  • The rum that conquered the world
    In 1993, Pernod Ricard S.A. and Corporación Cuba Ron S.A. launched the joint venture in charge of producing, marketing and commercialising Havana Club around the world. Thanks to the 250+ production team in Cuba, our rums are now the most rewarded Cuban rum with 27 medals in tasting competitions in the last four years.
  • More than rum: El Ron de Cuba
    Cuban rum cannot be understood without Cuban culture or Cuban people. Since 1996, Havana Club has also organised the Havana Club Grand Prix, one of the oldest and most prestigious competitions for professional bartenders. Since 2009 Havana Cultura has been supporting and showcasing Cuban talents worldwide with great success. To know more about Cuban Culture, a visit to our Museum of Rum offers a real-time experience of the rum-making process.
Our People
Crafted by Masters del Ron Cubano
The values of Havana Club are best represented by the Maestros del Ron Cubano. This is not a job taught in textbooks. As Don José Navarro, the first Maestro del Ron Cubano puts it, it is “a cultural heritage, passed on from Maestro to Maestro”. For 15 long years the aspiring Maestro undergoes rigorous training. Under the supervision of the dean of the Maestros del Ron Cubano, he learns to select the best molasses, supervise their transformation and distillation, pick the casks to age the distillates and blend them to obtain the finest rums. A Maestro del Ron Cubano is a true master of his craft.
  • Cuban masterclasses
    Training are also organized for non-employees: in collaboration with the Asociación de Cantineros de Cuba, Havana Club frequently organizes masterclasses to help Cuban bartenders reach their potential.
  • Havana Club is el ron de Cuba
    Produced by Maestros del Ron Cubano following traditional Cuban methods, enjoyed by cantineros and rum drinkers around the world to the rhythm of the best Cuban music, Havana Club embodies the spirit of Cuba.
