In 1862, Don Facundo Bacardi Massó bought his first rum distillery in Cuba. His rum contained yeast from nearby sugarcane fields as well as two separate spirits. He developed an aging process and incorporated charcoal filtration. Around the time of the Cuban revolution, the company's operations were moved to several other countries. Contemporary Bacardi rum comes in many flavors, including coconut, mango, cherry, apple, grape and peach.
