Key West First Legal Mojito Classes are one of the true Key West things to do. Key West First Legal Rum's Private Mojitos Classes are a genuine Cuban-American experience not to be missed! We sailed to Cuba to learn the art of Mojito making, and now we share that art with YOU.

The history of Key West First Legal Rum distillery is worthy of the Rum we make and sell. 105 Simonton St is the original location of  

Jack's Saloon in 1900 and Key West's Original Coca Cola bottling company in 1903. Finally, 90 years after Prohibition, in 2012 Key West First Legal Rum opened its doors. Key West, legal Rum and Coca-Cola, together at last.

 We explain on The Weather Channel how we helped over 15,000 people with Ruminizer. What does  the Police, Sherriffs, Doctors, citizens and anyone in need in the Florida Keys and Key West have in Common? They all smell like Legal Rum! Watch Here

 We consider our self trained mojito masters. Why you ask?  We sailed to Cuba on the Schooner Wolf  and were the first Americans to Run Rum to Cuba. Now you would say it takes some huevous to bring rum from Key West to Cuba, as they have amazing rum. We wanted to say thank you for the 80 some years that they ran rum to Key West and the Florida Keys by buying them a round with ours! 

The bonus that was given to use by the Cuban people was training us how to make Cuban Mojitos, as they make the best. My name is Paul Menta, menta means "mint" in spanish so i better make a dam good one!

We went to the famous and not so famous bars, homes and drinking places and we shown the secrets with the techniques on how to make a Real Mojito!

We now share this information in classes with The Key West Mojito Rums we make. Our goal is to train you to make them and enjoy with your family and friends and be the place that "The Mojito Party" happens.
