True legends never die?

Well, unfortunately BACARDÍ 151 rum had to be discontinued in 2016, but the legend of our Over Proof rum lives on in the memories of its loyal fanbase.

Why was BACARDÍ 151 rum discontinued? Well, we had already taken the first precaution when we started selling our 151 rum bottles with a metal flame protector built into the lid; yes, all bottles of 151 proof alcohol (75.5 %ABV) are well known for their flammable qualities. We’re sure you can guess how that situation escalated…

The responsible next step was to discontinue BACARDÍ 151 altogether. Some things are just better left to the imagination.

As a company, we care for our customers’ health and wellbeing, and since there are so many other premium BACARDÍ rums to try, we felt it was best for everyone to let BACARDÍ 151 slink away into the night and transform into the shadowy creature of legend it has become.

So, now that’s cleared up, how about trying one of our other premium rums or some of our more potent rum cocktails? The Zombie, for example, is definitely not for the faint hearted…

Or try these BACARDÍ Rums as a replacement for BACARDÍ 151:
BACARDÍ Ocho (BACARDÍ 8), a golden rum ideal in a Cuba Libre. Or BACARDÍ Gran Reserva Diez (BACARDÍ 10), a ten-year-old rum perfect for sipping or on the rocks.
