Boycott Bacardi

Bacardi is the world’s largest rum company and one of the biggest producers of spirits in the world, with sales valued at over $5 billion per year. But is its popularity deserved?

Bacardi regularly markets itself as an authentic Cuban rum, emphasising the fact that it was established in Cuba in 1862. However, Bacardi is neither produced nor consumed in Cuba and since the revolution in 1959, the Bacardi company has consistently acted to reinforce the United States’ blockade of Cuba.

In his exposé of the company’s campaign against the revolution, the Colombian journalist, Hernando Calvo Ospina, showed how Bacardi has devoted millions of dollars of its profits over the years to the destabilisation of the country, including critical support for the Helms-Burton Act of 1996.

So, if you want to drink an authentic rum from Cuba, order a Cuban brand such as Havana Club. Not only does it taste better, you’ll also be demonstrating your solidarity with Cuba.
