The history of Bacardi(3)

Bacardi (as early as the early 18th century, pirates in the Caribbean had been conquered by the same wild and domineering rum, hence the nickname “pirate wine”. )In 1912, Emilio Bacardi bought a mummy while traveling in Egypt as an exhibit at the Emilio Bacardi Moro Metropolitan Museum, which will open in San Diego. The mummy is still on display. In San Diego, his brother fakundo M. Bacardi continued to run the company with Henry Shug, who set up new filling plants in Barcelona and New York and began the company’s international expansion. New York’s factories were soon closed because of alcohol bans, and Cuba became a popular tourist destination for American tourists during this period.

In the 1920s, Emilio opened a new winery in San Diego. In the past 10 years, Bacardi architecture with decorative art style was built in Havana, and the third generation of Bacardi family began to join the family business. Fakundo Bacardi invited Americans who were still under the control of the prohibition to “come to Cuba to bathe in Bacardi rum”. A new product, Hatuey beer, was also launched during this period.
