World’s favorite Bacardí Rum recycles Water in “Good Spirited” Initiative
Water is key to the production of BACARDÍ rum. On average, it takes 12 liters of water to create one liter of any distilled spirit. At the BACARDÍ distillery’s island home in Puerto Rico, water conservation is an important component of the Bacardi Limited sustainability commitment.
Water is used to clean the American white oak barrels in which BACARDÍ rum ages. Imported from Kentucky and once used for whiskey as these barrels help develop the unique flavor, aroma and smoothness of BACARDÍ rum, the barrels are carefully rinsed before being filled. At Bacardi, this bathwater does not go to waste. It’s collected, then re-used to spray down and reduce the temperatures of the cooling towers used in the rum distillation process. Engineers at the Puerto Rico facility, the world’s largest premium rum distillery, have calculated the savings.
“We recycle about 15,000 gallons of water per day,” says Magaly Feliciano, Environmental Health and Safety Manager for Bacardi in Puerto Rico. “That’s enough to supply the daily water needs of 40 families of four.”
