BACARDÍ Rum Graphic Novel
Writer Warren Ellis and artist Michael Allred have been brought together for
the first time by BACARDÍ rum to create The Spirit of BACARDÍ, a graphic
novel that tells the stories behind the brand and the Company’s origins in
The Spirit of BACARDÍ will focus on Emilio Bacardí – son of BACARDÍ
creator Don Facundo Bacardí Massó – and his tireless work for Cuban
independence from Spain in the late 1800s. Emilio Bacardí was repeatedly
imprisoned and exiled for his belief in an independent Cuba, but persevered,
eventually becoming the first freely-elected Mayor of Santiago de Cuba.
The Spirit of BACARDÍ will be available as a digital download from
BACARDI.COM/SPIRITOFBACARDI on August 6th 2014.
