Earl Grey tea, dry sherry and sherry vinegar combine with the aged rum to produce a very interesting drink. Earl Grey flavours linger on the finish.

Inspiration: “The ‘Big Fish’ cocktail is not just a cocktail, it is the story behind it. Every drinking experience starts with a story; that's what makes people thirsty, that's what makes people use their imagination. The name comes from the tall tales of fisherman and the BIG FISH that got away. This links bartenders all over the world since they could be called the modern-day storytellers, authors and poets. All the ingredients are paying tribute to the origins of Bacardí Gran Reserva 8 Años rum, to the author and family. A good drink is like a good story, it should be enjoyed over and over again.”
