Carl Marcus Erlandson says of his drink, “Theobroma is my recipe for friendship; I have always seen BACARDÍ as a brand that brings people together.

“Theobroma is a Latin term originating from the famous Swedish botanist and doctor, Carl von Linné. In one of his travels he came across the cocoa tree and named it ‘Theobroma Cocoa,’ which means ‘food of the gods.’ Rum and chocolate – the essence of Theobroma - are two of the great things in life that friends enjoy together.”
