Bacardi was founded on February 4 by Don Facundo Bacardí Massó in Santiago de Cuba, when he bought a small distillery and revolutionized the rum-making process to create a smooth, light-bodied spirit – what the world now knows as BACARDÍ® rum. Bacardi has been a family-owned company for seven generations. In 1898, Bacardi established itself as a favorite of the rich and famous. One hot day in Daiquirí, Cuba, American mining engineer Jennings S. Cox invented the BACARDÍ Daiquirí cocktail as a refreshing treat for his copper-mining crews, using freshly squeezed lime juice, sugar, ice shavings and BACARDÍ Superior rum. Today, BACARDI is said to be the biggest premium rum distillery in the world. The famous bat logo as the historic and appealing designs create a unique retro collection.
