It was over 150 years ago when Facundo Bacardi and his brother José bought the Santiago de Cuba Distillery and began to distill what would become the most popular commercial rum in the world. Using a method of charcoal filtering, and oak barrel aging, Bacardi created a smoother more refined version of the locally made rum. Today, the Ron Bacardi Company is run in Puerto Rico, were it is the largest family owned spirits company in the world.
