Celebrate National Rum Day with BACARDÍ 8 Años Rum

See also

Tomorrow is National Rum Day so to celebrate, we recommend pouring up a cocktail mixed with BACARDÍ 8 Años Rum. This unique rum is like none other you have experienced. It starts off strong and ends smooth and can be enjoyed straight up on the rocks or added to your favorite cocktail recipe for a nutmeg and oaky vanilla flavor.

BACARDÍ 8 Años Rum was created in 1862 and has remained a private family blend for over seven generations. It is made from a special selection of barrel aged reserve rums, each aged a minimum of eight years in American white oak barrels. After aging, BACARDÍ “Maestros de Ron” blend to achieve layers upon layers of aroma and flavor.

We love the golden color of this flavor filled complex rum that offers a deep, layered and mellow flavor of dried fruits, nutmeg and oaky vanilla. The sweet finish and a slight piquant bitterness of orange zest is something that rum lovers will love to experience if you haven’t tried something like this before.

Here’s one of our favorite cocktail recipes from famed New York City bartender Audrey Saunders, who created the Old Cuban as the perfect showcase for BACARDÍ 8 Años rum. This drink is fast on its way to becoming a modern classic.
