A rum-tasting train ride celebrating the cultural ties between Miami and Cuba may be in your future.
The Havana Special Rum Train Excursion “transport[s] passengers back to the golden era of Miami-Havana culture and premium rail travel,” the company writes on its website. The ride highlights the railroad’s history and significance in developing the city, is a nod to the future of the railway spearheaded by Virgin’s Richard Branson, and of course, includes lots of rum.
The 2.5-hour experience for adults 21-and-over starts at Virgin MiamiCentral Station with a rum cocktail and Cuban-Latin-influenced hors d’oeuvres. On board, guests are greeted with a second rum cocktail. A tasting of three more rums from partner distilleries follows, as passengers learn about the rum-making process and the Cuban-American heritage.

The rum train also includes musical entertainment. It concludes with dessert, and yet another special rum cocktail. If that’s not enough rum for you, additional alcoholic beverages are available for purchase at the station bar.
The Havana Special Rum Train is currently running on Fridays and Saturdays between June 14 and June 20, 2019. Individual tickets are $125 per person, and table seating tickets are $140.
