THE BACARDÍ STORY
From a family dream in 1800’s
Cuba, to celebrating the moments that
matter today to our global community…
New York City bartender Audrey Saunders is a legendary mixologist. Inspired by BACARDÍ Reserva Ocho dark rum, she created a new cocktail to showcase it. A sparkling combination of rum and sparkling wine, the Old Cuban is on its way to becoming a modern classic.
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.
