Bacardi reveals most expensive bottle in company’s history

To celebrate their 150th birthday, Bacardi have released the Bacardi MMXII Vintage, the most expensive bottle in the company’s history.

The rum is expertly crafted by eight of the Bacardi family’s most senior Master-Blenders. Their aim was to create an exquisite and rare rum which paid homage to their ancestor, founder Don Facundo Bacardí Massó.

They used a blend of Bacardi rums,  which had rested in oak barrels for up to 20 years, to create the full-bodied, highly aromatic rum which boasts a smooth, oaken character and quintessentially Cuban, mellow flavour.

It is presented in a hand blown crystal decanter, which was inspired by the coconut palm planted at the entrance of the first Bacardi distillery, and is housed in a finely detailed leather case.

Only 1,000 500ml decanters of Bacardi MMXII Vintage have been created and 600 of those have gone to family members.

There are only 50 decanters available in the UK and they will go on sale later this year. However, The Savoy in London is exclusively selling glasses of the special blend for £300 a glass.

Along with the MMXII Vintage, Bacardi have also released Bacardi Oakheart, a smooth and oaky spirit which was developed over a 5 year period and is aimed at men.
