In its 150th anniversary yearlong celebration, Bacardi celebrates its tremendous success as the world’s largest privately-held spirits company and the incredible drive and perseverance it took to get there following the illegal confiscation of its assets in Cuba on October 15, 1960 – 52 years ago. While that event was an extraordinary event in the Company’s history after nearly 100 years of being in Cuba, it became a critical turning point to propel the family-owned Company and its namesake BACARDÍ® rum brand to take on a greater international profile. This turned BACARDÍ into the globally recognized brand it is today. In fact, within 20 years following the loss of the Company’s assets in Cuba, BACARDÍ rum became the number-one premium distilled spirits brand in the United States. Less than a year after that, it was the number-one selling spirit brand in the world.
