Bacardi Martini Limited

The international beverage multinational Bacardi-Martini Limited has its origins in Cuba. The wine merchant Facundo Bacardi Massó (1814-1887), who immigrated from Spain in 1830, experimented with spirits and founded the distillery "Bacardi y Compañia" with his brother José in Santiago de Cuba in 1862. He developed the recipe for the world's first clear "white" drinking rum, which is produced according to a recipe that is still kept secret today, with fermentation by special yeasts, charcoal filtering and storage in oak barrels. The unmistakable trademark is a bat, the symbol of good luck in Cuba. From 1872, the founder's sons Emilio and Facundo Bacardi Moreau continued to run the company.
