There is a new king in the Bacardi Empire of Rum… all hail the king. 

Bacardi is still family owned — seven generations of the Bacardi family have run the company since it was founded on February 4th, 1862. They are the largest privately held Spirits company in the world. Headquartered in Hamilton, Bermuda, they are best known for their namesake White Puerto Rican Rum. But they are a worldwide producer of Spirits covering every major category with annual sales nearing US $5 billion.

To celebrate the 150th anniversary of the company, Bacardi set out to create a masterpiece line of ultra-premium Rums. Thus, they created the Facundo range of four special Rums — each distinct and unique.

Facundo Paraiso Rum is the oldest Rum Bacardi makes. They combed the warehouses across their Rum empire to collect the finest and oldest barrels. Some sources say that the Rums are up to twenty-three years old, other sources say that the Rum averages 23 years. But what matters here is that this is brilliantly-aged stuff married in new Limousin oak casks. It’s big and bold and different from any Bacardi you have ever had.


Smartass Corner:
The Facundo range of ultra-premium Rums from Bacardi is named after the original founder, Don Facundo Bacardi Massó.

Rum is a sugar cane based spirit, primarily made in the Caribbean and Latin America, but you can really find Rum in many corners of the world.
If the center of our galaxy had a signature scent, it would be Rum. Yup, astronomers studying a giant cloud in the Milky Way found a substance called ethyl formate, a chemical that smells suspiciously like Rum.
Facundo and his brother José established the original Santiago de Cuba distillery in 1862. Fruit bats occupied the rafters of the building. This served as the inspiration for the Bacardi bat logo. For those who were illiterate, a widespread phenomena in the 19th century, the bat logo became an easily recognizable symbol.  
Rum used to be accepted as a form of currency in Europe and Australia, a practice we should probably bring back into fashion.
Mount Gay Rum is the oldest existing Rum company in the World dating back to 1705. This is also the year Guy Fawkes tried to blow up Britain’s Parliament.
Rum is why we measure alcohol proof. To make sure Rum wasn’t watered down, it had to be ‘proven’ by soaking gunpowder with it. If it was ‘overproof’ (higher than 57.15 % vol.), then the gunpowder would ignite, but if it wouldn’t, it was ‘underproof.’
