Matthew’s inspiration: “El meu avi va anar a Cuba (my grandfather went to Cuba).
At just 16, Facundo Bacardí crossed the Atlantic to the New World: Cuba - a Spanish colony known as 'The land of opportunity.’
The UAE is a 21st Century ‘land of opportunity.’ Like Cuba, it is a cultural melting pot and every bartender here has made the same decision: to leave their home and search for something more.
El Meu Avi is inspired and dedicated to those who pursue their dreams; we all walk in the footsteps of legacies past, whilst we create our own.”
