Puerto Rico has a wide tourist and leisure offer. It is a formidable vacation destination, therefore, from Park Royal Homestay Club Cala Puerto Rico we want to talk to you about one of the mandatory stops if you visit the city of San Juan, Casa Bacardí and its iconic rum distillery.

Join us in this article and we will tell you a little about the history of this renowned rum company and the different types of visits and tours that can be carried out, without a doubt, a highly recommended experience.

History of the Bacardi House


Foundation


In 1862, the couple formed by Facundo Bacardí Massó and Amalia Moreau founded the Bacardi alcoholic beverage company in Santiago de Cuba after having moved from Barcelona where they were originally from during their adolescence.

After a long process of trial and error, Don Facundo was able to develop a softer and sweeter alcoholic beverage, achieving a different rum that contrasted very well with the liquor that was widely consumed at the time.

History of the Bacardi House

Bat symbol


Don Facundo Bacardi's wife discovers a colony of bats in the distillery they had recently acquired. These fruit bats had a special meaning in Barcelona, the place of origin of marriage where it was said that these animals are symbols of good fortune, brotherhood and fidelity.

At the same time, these bats are great natural partners for the cultivation of sugar cane with which rum is made, since they are responsible for pollinating the crops and feed on insects and parasites that harm this plant.

For these reasons, from that moment on the new symbol of the company would be the iconic Bacardi bat.

The Bacardi House Puerto Rico


Already in 1936, the alcoholic beverage company had expanded very significantly and opened a distillery in Puerto Rico due to the high price of tariffs that were paid to send rum to the United States.

Finally, due to the tense situation that was being experienced in Cuba due to the revolution, the Bacardi family decided to move all its main operations to the island of Puerto Rico where a few years ago they had built the new distillery.

Today, Casa Bacardí Puerto Rico is one of the main companies on the island and even the Secretary of Puerto Rico himself, Ferdinand Mercado, has commented that the first thing many tourists ask when they arrive on the island is where to find the Bacardi House.
