El Arsenal: The Rum Box is the go-to location for access to the best in Colombian rum, innovative cocktails, and local Cartagena cuisine. Chef Abraham Dau, the heart and soul of El Arsenal, created a place for those looking to excite their senses visually and on the palate. One of the top five mixologists in Colombia, Abe Dau not only puts careful thought into each cocktail that appears on his menu, he has worked tirelessly to build the largest collection of exclusively Colombian rum in the world.
The specialized Colombian Rum & Chocolate Tasting is the most popular experience at El Arsenal. Each grade of rum and chocolate are carefully selected, and paired, to give the client a unique sensory experience. The spectrum of rum and chocolate spans the coastal and mountainous regions of Colombia; from the smallest artisanal houses to the largest producers. Each guest not only leaves having experienced the diversity of Colombian rum, they take with them a deeper understanding of Colombia's history.
The tasting begins with a mini welcome cocktail, followed by a mixture of Colombian rum, aguardiente and rum infusions; some paired with different kinds of Colombian chocolate. The clients will taste rum for shooting, sipping and mixing into cocktails, ranging in age from 4 - 27 years. They will learn the history of rum, and its distilling process, while enjoying a few light bites from Chef Dau's menu.
Our tasting has a duration of 45 min to an hour 20 min approximately.
TASTINGS ARE GIVEN TO GROPUS OF 2 TO 30 PEOPLE MAX.
We will make your trip unforgettable!
