Please enter your Unique code if you have one.

Bacardi has shown a lot of resilience in the face of adversity since its introduction in Cuba in 1862 including a fire in 1880, Prohibition beginning in 1920 in the United States, an earthquake in 1932 that destroyed facilities and the revolutionary government led by Fidel Castro that seized Bacardi’s Cuban assets in 1960. 

“Some men are kicked out of bars, others are kicked out of countries,” reads the headline on an ad about Bacardi being exiled from Cuba. It is now based in Hamilton, Bermuda.  

“Earthquakes, fires, exile, prohibition,” reads another ad. “Sorry fate — you picked the wrong family.”

 This tasting is an opportunity to enjoy mouth-watering cocktails and learn the fascinating history of Bacardi with Boisdale’s cocktail master William Solorzan.
