product Details

Bacardi Carta Blanca circa 1920s

An historic bottle of Bacardi white rum, distilled by the Bacardi family in Santiago de Cuba, the ancestral home of the Brand.

Whilst the brand expanded production (specifically into Mexico and Puerto Rico) through the first half of the 20th century, Santiago would remain the heart of the business until the Cuban revolution when the family's assets were seized and the company relocated it's headquarters to Bermuda.

With no mention of the company's New York office on the label, this bottle likely dates to the Prohibition era of the 1920s, prior to the the updating of the logo displayed here to a new version in 1931.
