Bacardi Carta Blanca Bottled 1916-1919 - Santiago De Cuba 70cl / 46%
A bottle of Bacardi Carta Blanca rum from Santiago de Cuba. We estimate this was bottled in 1916 to 1919.
Bacardi was founded in 1862, and family-owned for seven generations. In 1912, Emilio Bacardi travelled to Egypt, where he purchased a mummy (still on display) for the future Emilio Bacardi Moreau Municipal Museum in Santiago de Cuba. In Santiago, his brother Facundo M. Bacardí continued to manage the company along with Schueg, who began the company's international expansion by opening bottling plants in Barcelona (1910) and New York City (1915). The New York plant was shut down soon after due to Prohibition, while during this time Cuba became a preferred holiday destination for US tourists.
