Let's dive into everything behind the Bacardi brand, the infamous Bacardi bat symbol, the Bacardí Limón rum option, other Bacardi flavors, the best mixers, a couple of lemon rum cocktail recipes, and where you can get your hands on Bacardi products! Here we go!
A Bit About The Bacardí Brand
Let's start by transporting to Santiago de Cuba. It is 1862, and Don Facundo Bacardí Massó has a dream of making rum. He ends up buying a distillery, a small one, but a distillery nonetheless. And he starts making rum.
Everyone knows Bacardi Rum, whether they've tried it, heard it mentioned in a song, or seen it lining market shelves. Now, nearly 150 years later, Bacardi has become the most-awarded rum worldwide. What started as a small dream in Cuba has become a worldwide sensation. It's everywhere.
Bacardi is all about drinking distilled spirits with an exquisite, quality taste.
The Bacardí Bat Symbol
The bat symbol on every Bacardi bottle has an interesting story behind it. After buying the distillery, Doña Amalia, Facundo's wife, noticed that fruit bats had made the distillery rafters their home. The colony of fruit bats seemed like a sign of sorts. They symbolize many things, including good health, good fortune, and family unity.
After making the bat the symbol of their rum, Bacardi Rum became known by the locals as the rum of the bat.
Alongside the symbol of the bat, Facundo planted a coconut palm outside the distillery, making it another symbol of the family and the rum brand. The coconut palm is known as El Coco, symbolizing strength and resilience. The distillery has withstood the test of time, making it through several different natural disasters.
Bacardí Limón Rum
Named Bacardí Limón Rum after the Spanish word for lemon, Bacardi Limón Rum is bursting with a delicious citrus taste. Made with a mixture of three citrus fruits, you'll taste the natural flavors of lemon, lime, and grapefruit. With a base of white rum, it's perfect for mixing like all white rum.
It's a popular option if you want something to make a refreshing cocktail with! And if you happen to find yourself missing summertime and the summer warmth, Bacardí Limón Rum will have you feeling it's summertime all year round.
Bacardí Rum Flavors
Although Bacardí Limón may be a delicious option in the collection of Bacardi flavored rums, there are several different options to choose from. If you're looking for rum with some fresh flavor, the flavored Bacardi rums are here for you! Here are a few other flavor options if you're looking for something a little different:
- Bacardí Tropical

Best Bacardi Lemon Mixers
Bacardi Limon works great if you're drinking it on its own, but you can always dress it up with some great mixers. Soda is always an easy mixer. Try it with some Coca-Cola or Sprite. If you'd rather mix it with some juice, you can try juices like cranberry juice or pineapple juice. Or stick with the citrus theme and top off your lemon rum with some delicious and refreshing grapefruit juice! RedBull is another option if you're looking for some extra energy!
If you want to keep things simple, juice top off your Bacardi Limon with some sparkling water or tonic water. Garnish with a fresh lemon wedge for some zest! It's easy to dress up a simple drink with some fresh garnishes. Slices of lemons, limes, grapefruits, or oranges are excellent options. Want to be extra festive? Throw a cocktail umbrella in your glass!
