Bacardi Grapefruit Rum - CopyBacardi Grapefruit Rum was just released.  It is one of 17 flavored rums they create with rum distilled in Puerto Rico.  This is the industries second grapefruit flavored rum.  Captain Morgan Grapefruit Rum was launched January 2015.  Bacardi starts with molasses and a single strain of yeast, Le Levadura Bacardi.  After fermenting for 30 hours in closed fermentation tanks the fermented molasses is split, with some column distilled, and some beer distilled.  Each is aged separately in charred American white oak barrels previously used to age bourbon.  Once mature the rums are blended and filtered though a mix of charcoal made from tropical woods, and coconut shells.  Natural flavors are then infused before bottling in Jacksonville Florida at 70 proof.
