THE BACARDÍ STORY
From a family dream in 1800’s
Cuba, to celebrating the moments that
matter today to our global community…
The Hotel Nacional was the epicenter of culture in Havana during the 1950s. In the hotel’s bar, the who’s who of both the island and the world mingled over cocktails, and the Hotel Nacional was the zeitgeist that brought them together. Mixing the sweet Caribbean taste of BACARDÍ Reserva Ocho Rum with nectarous apricot liqueur, the Hotel Nacional brings you back in time to Cuba’s Golden Age.
Rum is made using only three ingredients: molasses from sugarcane, yeast and water. Ingredients are fermented, then distilled, aged, filtered and blended.
Rum is a wonderfully complex and diverse spirit. Colour can give us clues about time spent aging or the flavours that might be found within. Dark can be bold, sweet (or dry) and even smoky, gold is rich and soothing, and white is smooth, subtle and often refreshing.
But color can be misleading. The best way to truly understand a rum is to taste it for yourself.
