Bacardi, one of the most recognizable names in rum today, draws upon a nearly 150-year tradition of rum distillation and purification. BACARDI Superior, the official name of the white rum developed by founder Don Facundo Bacardi in 1862 in Santiago de Cuba, plays an integral role in the Bacardi portfolio and consistently tops the world rum market. During his early distillation experiments with the then-unrefined liquor, Don Bacardi used ingredients such as a unique yeast found in sugarcane fields to smooth out the flavor of the rum. Since its creation, BACARDI Superior has garnered a reputation as a premier spirit with a light and distinctive taste. Many popular cocktails rely on BACARDI Superior as their primary ingredient, including the BACARDI Cuba Libre, the BACARDI Daiquiri, and the BACARDI Mojito. DEWAR'S Blended Scotch Whisky, developed in the 1840s by Scottish distiller John Dewar, was acquired by Bacardi in 1998. Widely heralded for its rich flavor and hints of honey and heather, DEWAR'S has become one of the most acclaimed names in blended Scotch whisky. Since its creation, Dewar's has grown from a small distillery in Perth, Scotland, into one of the top five whisky brands in the world. Thanks to the company's dedication to excellence and innovation in whisky blending techniques, Dewar's currently enjoys status as one of the most rapidly growing whisky companies worldwide. As such, Dewar's has unveiled a series of new products in the past decade, including DEWAR'S 18-year-old Founder's Reserve Blended Scotch Whisky and ABERFELDY 21-year-old Single Malt Scotch Whisky. In addition to its signature brand of rum and DEWAR'S Blended Scotch Whisky, Bacardi also counts GREY GOOSE vodka among its best-known products. Carefully distilled in the Cognac region of western France, GREY GOOSE uses top-quality ingredients such as golden fine French wheat and filtered spring water. Considered one of the premier names in the world of vodka, GREY GOOSE has built a reputation as one of the best-tasting spirits of its kind, and a must-have drink at upscale social gatherings. GREY GOOSE has also received high praise from a large number of critics, earning the title of The World's Best Tasting Vodka from the Chicago Beverage Testing Institute and a Platinum Medal at the World Spirits Championship during its first year of production.
