The entire FACUNDO Rum Collection links to the notion of
transformation and transcending the rum category, but Neo,
latin for “new,” refers to the reinvention of light rum.
This irresistibly alluring rum is crafted by blending light-
to medium-bodied rums in oak barrels. The young rums
impart brightness and youth, while the older reserves give
Neo a smoothness and a well-rounded nature never seen
before in a light rum. After ageing, the rums that comprise
Neo are carefully filtered to remove color but not the other
components contributed by the barrel. The result is a
sheer blonde hue and unprecedented smoothness.
The embossed Art-Deco inspiration on the Neo bottle is
reminiscent of the nude reliefs on our Edificio Bacardi in
Havana. The coconut palm is inspired by one planted at
our first distillery in the port city of Santiago.
