THE BACARDÍ STORY
From a family dream in 1800’s
Cuba, to celebrating the moments that
matter today to our global community…
Inspired by a family recipe from 1862, BACARDÍ Reserva Ocho 8 year old rum is known as The Family Reserve.
Rum can be aged anywhere from one year upwards. Aging rum can add additional complexity to its flavour and mouthfeel.
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 colour can be misleading. The best way to truly understand a rum is to taste it for yourself.
Rum is made using only three ingredients: molasses from sugarcane, yeast and water. Ingredients are fermented, then distilled, aged, filtered and blended.
