About:

Created for Bacardí Legacy 2017 by Matías Iriarte, Ginbo Group, Palma de Mallorca, Spain.

Inspiration: “The history of Don Facundo Bacardí and my own history have much in common; we have both had to fight for our dreams. My story is about a man who crossed the Atlantic in turbulent times and went to look for a better life, started from scratch on a paradise island, fell in love with a wonderful woman, founded his company and struggled to achieve his dream.

“El Luchador means ‘the fighter’ - Don Facundo left us his legacy, and now I'm building mine - let's toast the fighters!”
