The Bacardi Facundo Collection

The Bacardi Collection of Four Rare Sipping Rums Debuts in Los Angeles and San Francisco This Autumn  

Interesting news on the Facundo range of rums. We picked up a set last April when we were in Miami for the Rum Renaissance Festival (any they weren’t cheap – but amazingly collectable).  Good news for California, but no sign of them heading to UK or Europe.  Check out the details…
Press Release: The FACUNDO™ Rum Collection, a limited release of four of the most exquisite, extraordinary hand-blended sipping rums, announces the Collection's release in California.  This marks the luxury brand's first expansion since successful launches in Miami and New York in 2013.
