Crafted by Maestros de Ron Bacardi, Bacardi Gold Rum is a unique rum expression that boasts exceptionally rich flavors and a golden complexion due to time spent in toasted oak barrels. Its distinct mellow character is a result of a special blend of charcoals that is a proprietary secret of Maestros de Ron Bacardi. Expect rich, soothing flavors of vanilla, toasted almonds, buttery caramel, and sweet banana notes, rounded up by orange peel zest. Bottled at 80 proof, the finish is dry, slightly sweet, and oaky.

The Bacardi family is the lifeblood of Bacardi Rum. They first began producing Rum in Cuba in 1862. The subsequent years that followed brought a revolution to wild Havana nights during the American Prohibition. Emilio Bacardí Moreau refused to support the Spanish government, fighting staunchly for the independence of Cuba, and was consequently exiled for his beliefs. When he later returned to Cuba, he became the first freely-elected mayor of Santiago de Cuba. Cuba in the 1960s was undergoing a revolution, which eventually led to the Bacardi family’s exodus out of Cuba. The members of the family moved to the United States and shifted their distillery to the beautiful island of Puerto Rico.
Often depicted in red, a color of joy, bats represent "good fortune" in traditional Chinese culture. This is the Bacardi symbol, and it is a reflection of their prosperity. Eventually, they began to rebuild the empire that they had left behind in their Cuban homeland. Bacardi is now in their seventh generation, and they are in constant pursuit of perfection in the art of rum-making.
