In San Juan, we took a tour at the Bacardi Factory. Inside where they show you how they use to make the rum...it's top secret and no photography is allowed. I'm not much of a drinker but at the end of the tour we received two free drinks and I chose coconut rum and a mojito. DELICIOUS!!!

Facundo Bacardí, a wine merchant, was born in Sitges, Catalonia, Spain in 1814 and emigrated to Cuba in 1830. During this period, rum was cheaply made and not considered a refined drink, one rarely sold in upscale taverns. Facundo began attempting to "tame" rum. After experimenting with several techniques he hit upon filtering the rum through charcoal, which removed impurities. Moving from the experimental stage to a more commercial endeavor, he and his brother José set up shop in a Santiago de Cuba distillery they bought in 1862; that distillery housed a still made of copper and cast iron, and was in a building in whose rafters lived fruit bats. The abundance of bats on the ceilings is what inspired the Bacardi Bat logo. Revenue US $5.5 billion (2007)

RayNvb Nice colors. I never associated the bat with Bacardis. I'm not much of a drinker either. Had you waited to do your photos after the drinks, your rum column would have looked like The Tower of Pisa.
