I don't know much about alcohol. In fact, I am not much of a drinker because I don't particularly like the taste of ANY kind of alcohol.
A few weeks ago, however, I was invited to experience Bacardi.
Here's what I learned.
Rum is classified by basic definition as a distilled alcoholic beverage made from sugarcane. It undergoes either fermentation or distillation which results in a clear liquid that is usually aged in oak barrels – much like most other liquor.
However, if whiskey is defined by its heritage, vodka for its purity and gin for its neutrality, rum is commonly defined by its spice. And because it finds its core in the value of the flavour it inherently keeps as well as the manner and beauty by which it mixes with other beverages, rum is more often than not also defined as romantic.
Bacardi, the oldest and largest distributor of this spirit understands these unique characteristics of a beverage with humble roots and has elevated the rawness of the liquor to an age-old story of love and life. And knowing that no story is complete without a proper storyteller, Bacardi has been working with one of the world’s leading mixologists, self-confessed perfectionist and romantic, David Cordoba.
He's also quite hot!!!
