Key West Hemingway Days Papa Look A-Like Event featuring Key West Legal Rum Distillery- 1 bottle brings in $11,000 donation!

 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.
