“Back in time, when communication was very difficult, people used to be closer to each other.

“I have chosen cloves and star anise, spices from Asia; the French Cognac to represent Europe, the earthiest bitter and BACARDÍ Superior from Central America. I present to you the ‘BACARDÍ Original Connection’, a drink to take people back in time and bring them together.”
