Bacardi Carta Blanca circa 1915-1919

A historic old bottle of Bacardi white rum, distilled by the Bacardi family at their original Cuban distillery. The facility was managed by Facundo M. Bacardi, who oversaw their expansion into Spain and the US, with officed and bottling plants in Barcelona and New York.

The New York arm was opened in 1915, but closed shortly after, in 1919 with the expected Prohibition Act coming into force the following year. Bacardi would find themselves back in the US many decades later, after their assets were seized during the Cuban revolution, and the family exiled from the island.
