Bacardi celebrates birthday with rum release

To celebrate Bacardi’s 150th birthday, Bacardi has released its rarest rum to date – Ron Bacardi de Maestros de Ron, Vintage: MMXII.

This anniversary blend saw eight of the Bacardi family’s most senior Maestros de Ron (master-blenders) join forces to create the rum that pays homage to their ancestor and founder Don Facundo Bacardí Massó.

One thousand 500ml decanters of Bacardi MMXII Vintage have been created, with 600 being presented to family members and the remainder being made available for collectors and rum connoisseurs.

Made using a blend of Bacardi rums, rested in oak barrels for up to 20 years, this spirit is finished in 60-year-old Cognac barrels from the Bacardi family’s private cellars.

Presented in a hand-blown crystal decanter inspired by the coconut palm planted at the entrance of the first Bacardi distillery in Santiago de Cuba, each decanter is housed in a finely detailed leather case.

Bacardi Family Master-Blender, Guillermo Garcia Lay said: “We had the privilege of working with some incredible stocks of aged rum. We were looking for fruity, woody notes and the balance and equilibrium that makes a great rum and are really proud of the result. The depth of flavour and character of we have achieved is incredibly unique.”
