In 1862, Facundo Bacardi bought an old, tin-roofed distillery near the Santiago de Cuba harbour. There he created the spirit that would define the world’s standard for quality rum, smoother and more drinkable than any before. Today, his original recipe continues to be a family secret. Fortunately, it’s been passed down through six generations of master blenders. Bacardi is the world’s first refined rum. It is double filtered through charcoal for smoothness and aged in natural white oak for character.
Enjoy this one in moderation! Bacardi 151 is a premium, high proof golden rum, traditionally used for making delicious, exotic island drinks. Thrill seekers can ignite 151. But beware! At 75.5% alc./vol. this is a highly flammable product and should be treated with appropriate respect. The makers warn against removing the built in flame arrester in the neck of the bottle, as explosions have been known to occur. For the less adventurous, use Bacardi 151 in Mai Tai’s, rum runners and punches.
