Bacardi-Martini Limited

The international beverage multinational has its origin in Cuba. The 1830 from Spain immigrated wine merchant Facundo Bacardi Massó (1814-1887) experimented with spirits and founded the small 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, following a recipe that is still kept secret today fermentation produced by special yeasts, charcoal filtering and storage in oak barrels. The unmistakable trademark is a bat, in Cuba the symbol of luck. From 1872, the founding sons Emilio and Facundo Bacardi Moreau continued the company. The late 19th century was the rum well known far beyond Cuba.
