Episode Summary

The mojito, the rum and Coke and the daiquiri - made legendary with the help of one of the world's most popular rums - Bacardi. For 150 years, the Bacardi family has worked on perfecting its unique blending process to create a one-of-a-kind flavor. We'll travel to San Juan, Puerto Rico, where family tradition and technology meet to create one of the most popular premium rums. The main distillery produces more than 200 million bottles of rum a year, using the same formula and aging techniques that were used in the original batch 150 years ago. Bacardi's special process includes extracting alcohol from molasses, fermentation, distillation and the charcoal mellowing of the rum, which is filtering the rum to reach a smooth texture. But to be sure it is the best, Bacardi brings in its master blender to ensure that each bottle of rum tastes the same.moreless
