Review:

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.

History:

Created for Bacardí Legacy 2017 by Vitaly Alekseyev at The Duchess, Amsterdam

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 fishermen and the BIG FISH that got away. This links bartenders worldwide since they could be called modern-day storytellers, authors and poets. All the ingredients pay tribute to the origins of Bacardí Gran Reserva 8 Años rum to the founder and family. A good drink is like a good story; it should be enjoyed over and over again.
