Bacardi has unveiled a new packaging design for its namesake rum brand, designed to reflect the brand's “unique heritage”.

The new bottle – which is the first redesign for around a decade – is slimmer, taller and “more cylindrical”, the company said. The change marks a return to the original Spanish names for the portfolio of rums, with Superior, Gold and Black becoming 'Carta Blanca' , 'Carta Oro' and 'Carta Negra'.

The refresh highlights Bacardi's roots in Cuba, where the company was established in 1862. However, since being exiled from Cuba in 1960, following the country's revolution, the privately-owned Bacardi has been based in Bermuda and its rums are predominantly produced in Puerto Rico and Mexico. 

“Our vision was to create a bottle that told the story of Bacardi, its unique heritage and the masterful crafting that goes into the creation of each of our premium rums,” said Bacardi's global brand director, Caroline Hipperson.

The new bottles launch in the UK today and will be released across other European markets from March, and then to further global markets from April. 

Late last year, following a move to normalise relations between Cuba and the US, Bacardi said it is "proud of its Cuban roots" and will "wait and see what the impacts are" from deal.
