French Scotty Marshall says of his drink, “My mother would always remind me of my island roots; we left St. Thomas and Coki Beach just before Hurricane Hugo. We settled in Washington, DC. - a new place in which to build new lives whilst holding on to our Island roots - like the Bacardí family, when they were forced out of Cuba and settled in Puerto Rico.
“Leaving the islands taught me a crucial early lesson for success in any aspect of life: you must draw strength from your roots, and never fear embracing new experiences and ways of thinking to overcome the unforeseen obstacles that lie ahead. That is what the Bacardí family has done for over 150 years and what Coki Beach means to me.”
