The Mojito Story

Its Humble Origins

Back in the 16th century, the Draque cocktail was created, combining aguardiente (a crude precursor to rum) with lime, sugar and mint. This concoction is said to be the earliest version of the Mojito Cocktail.

The Mojito Story

The Birth of the Mojito

In 1862, BACARDÍ founder Don Facundo Bacardi began producing rum. The Draque recipe was altered to replace aguardiente with something more palatable, choosing BACARDÍ white rum. The Mojito, as we know it, was born, sealing BACARDÍ’s place as the best rum for Mojitos.
