Blog: Olly WehringHavana Club - It's a fair question... isn't it?

Olly Wehring | 17 August 2006

As you'll see when it goes live tomorrow, I've been researching the full story about Havana Club this week. I've spoken to both Bacardi and Pernod Ricard, and some of the language has been really quite colourful.

Pernod is, naturally, a tad peeved at Bacardi for launching its own Havana Club rum this month in the US, a market Pernod can't penetrate with the product right now due to a longstanding trade embargo. The French company has subsequently hit Bacardi with a lawsuit, accusing the US company of misleading consumers by offering a rum called Havana Club that is actually made in... Puerto Rico.

I stopped short of asking Pernod one question yesterday, just so I could publicly ask the company now.

Pernod, where is Malibu rum made?
