Read This: Bacardi and The Long Fight for Cuba.

I just started it and can’t put it down. A pretty amazing and enthralling account of the Bacardi family and how they set up the world’s biggest rum brand in Cuba and then had their business run out of the country, with lots of stories and politics and crazy occurrences in between. The Bacardi company now owns tons of other brands but is still owned by the Bacardi family, the great great grandson of the founder in charge. A fascinating read.

    This sounds like a fascinating book and just the sort of thing that I enjoy reading especially since rum can be quite delicious even neat. Thank you for the book recommendation!

    Travel to Cuba and you will get a very different perspective of the Barcardi family! – this book should be the ‘long fight for captilism’ – read http://www.kalahari.com/books/Bacardi/632/16736205.aspx for a different angle
