Founded in Cuba in 1862, by Don Facundo Bacardi, Bacardi has grown to become the world's leading producer of rum.
When rum was first produced by distilling sugar cane juice, it was an unrefined, fiery drink that became associated with the sailors and pirates of the Caribbean seaports.
When, Don Bacardi immigrated to Cuba from Spain in 1829, he brought with him an inventive mind and a love of drinking. He discovered that the rum produced in the island was of a rich, dark and almost overwhelming nature.
This began to change in 1862, when, after much experimentation with the distillation process, Don Bacardi, by discovering that a lighter, smoother, and more flavourful drink could be distilled from the original rum formula, founded Bacardi in Cuba, and began the development of the new type of rum.
