The Epic Story Of The Bacardí Family
For more than 150 years, the BACARDÍ family has had incredible stories to tell. Earthquakes! Fire! Revolution! Prohibition! Exile! If that sounds like it would make a gripping, exciting graphic novel, then you’d be right.
The Spirit of BACARDÍ is a graphic novel that tells the stories behind the Bacardí family and the company’s origins in Cuba. These tales are brought to life by some legendary graphic novel talent – a unique collaboration between writer Warren Ellis and artist Michael Allred.
The Spirit of BACARDÍ focuses on Emilio Bacardí – son of founder Don Facundo Bacardí Massó – and his tireless work for Cuban independence in the late 1800s.
The graphic novel also touches upon early challenges the Bacardí family faced and overcame – including an earthquake that destroyed their city and a fire that ravaged their distillery – and ends with the creation of the original Cuba Libre cocktail in 1900.
