To honor 150 years of Bacardi rum-making expertise and craftsmanship, eight Maestros de Ron (Master Blenders), all Bacardí family members, have combined their extraordinary talents to create a very special, limited-edition Bacardi Rum – Ron Bacardi de Maestros de Ron, Vintage, MMXII. Along with the bottle, there will actually be a series of birthday parties, in major cities across the world which will bring together the company and the major travel retailers in each region, under a common roof for a commemorative evening together, something which stands as the brand’s underline to this day.
The world’s largest privately-owned liquor company has created the unique blend of rum by letting it slowly refined in American oak barrels for 20 years and finished in 60-year-old cognac barrels, leaving the special spirit with unique characteristic. Due to the dual containership of the rum, the blend has unique characteristics perhaps never seen before in premium rums around the world.
Then the packaging in which the rum will be sold, are equally artistic as well. Hand blown and housed in special leather casing, these crystal decanters will be holding 500 ml of the coveted beverage. Available in are only 400 pieces, every Bacardi 150th Anniversary Limited Edition Rum bottle is priced at $2,000. The special edition rum is known to have 43% alcohol by volume.

The first Bacardi 150th party will take place in Germany on January 28, followed by Canada parties starting February 1, and the United States, Europe, Latin America, Asia-Pacific and the Middle East starting February 4.
