“Jose Leon Bouteiller was a French merchant living in Cuba around the 1840s who, together with Facundo Bacardí Masso, founded ‘Bacardí Bouteiller y Compania.’ After their company was a success, Bouteiller’s share was bought by Facundo’s family and has stayed in the Bacardí family until this day.

“The French Governor asks the question ‘what if Bouteiller had still been a major part in the company today?’

“Taking influence from the French cuisine and style, it is a modernized Champagne cocktail featuring BACARDÍ Carta Blanca, to create a classic new aperitif, perfect for every time of the day.

“Who knows? Maybe if Bouteiller was still in the company, his son would have become the French Governor of Santiago, like Emillio Bacardí.”
