While getting some answers for the mystery old liquor bottle in a previous thread I sent the photos of the bottle to a guy who was doing research for a book he is writing. He had managed to get hold of the Bacardi historian in Miami who gave him this reason why the old Bacardi bottles were green in colour, like a wine bottle.
"Pepin, the archivist/historian at Bacardi said that the light green colored glass of the Bacardi rum bottles is called "Georgia Green." Apparently the Coca-Cola Company was using it for their product and Bacardi approached them early on to see if they could also use it. It seems that the cozy relationship between Bacardi and Coke was already established at that point and they felt that the same color of bottle would only enhance the business and marketing relationship."
Interesting. Here is the link to the bottle in question again incase you missed it.
Of course this was before the embargo. I think the bottle in the photo has, "made in the USA", on the bottom. I guess this explains it all.
