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.
Clear, deep coppery amber in colour. The bouquet shows black strap molasses, toasty oak, chicory, roasted almonds, passion fruit, cacao and pecan pie. Rich and full-bodied with molasses, coal dust, dark fruit, roasted bananas, dark chocolate and espresso coffee. Very slight vanilla sweetness. Slightly bitter mocha coffee, coal dust, molasses and black pepper spice on the finish.
