THE BACARDÍ STORY
From a family dream in 1800’s
Cuba, to celebrating the moments that
matter today to our global community…
In 1862, after 10 years of perfecting his rums, Don Facundo Bacardí Massó introduced the world to his BACARDÍ Superior rum. A sublime rum for cocktails, it doesn’t dominate other flavours nor does it disappear when mixed. Perfect for classic rum cocktails like the Mojito.
This distinctive spirit is aged in American white oak barrels and shaped through a secret blend of charcoal for a distinctive smoothness, making it perfect for classic rum cocktails.
BACARDÍ Superior is a light and aromatic white rum with delicate floral and fruity notes, ideal for mixing.
In 1898, American mining engineer Jennings Stockton Cox created the Daiquirí. Dining with a colleague, he mixed three local ingredients – lime juice, sugar and BACARDÍ Superior – with ice and chilled water.
Like many of the world’s greatest pairings, a rum and cola is best if made with ‘the original’ BACARDÍ.
The origin of the name ‘Mojito’ is shrouded in mystery. Some believe it comes from ‘mojar’, the Spanish verb ‘to wet’, whilst others say it comes from the West African word ‘mojo’ meaning to place a spell.
The national cocktail of Puerto Rico, its creation is credited to Ramón ‘Monchito’ Marrero, a bartender at the Caribe Hilton Hotel’s Beachcomber’s Bar in San Juan. He first mixed it on August 15th, 1954.
