It’s not often that a company gets to have official cocktails made by their own liquors, but Bacardi isn’t your average rum company. The company is literally the world’s largest family-owned liquor producer, and rakes in billions of dollars per year.
This is quite the feat, especially when you consider that it has existed since 1862. It is truly fascinating to realize that the Bacardi brand has existed before the Cuban Revolution, and even before Prohibition, which only adds to its iconic status. In case you thought that a Bacardi official doesn’t necessarily need Bacardi, think again: in 1936, the New York Supreme Court ruled that the drink MUST contain Bacardi rum to be called a Bacardi cocktail. It’s not often that a cocktail is required to have a certain brand of liquor by law! However, one thing is for sure: millions around the world love the Bacardi cocktail, so you can say that the verdict is in on the cocktail being an official one. It also holds an IBA Official Cocktail status.
