What RUM does to you...?

Recommended Posts

Guest imported_El Mamerro

I heard Havana Club is some seriously amazing stuff. Can't wait to get my hands on some, but damn the fucking embargo. Where are you located, Rodney?

 

Webster, I wouldn't consider Hurricanes a girly drink... at least not the ones I was given at Mardi Gras. They were made with 151 and Everclear, and came in a 40oz FISH BOWL of death. Jesus Christ, those things...

 

Another thing to consider is what kind of drinking you'll be doing. These days I'm heartily enjoying straight sipping rum. Mount Gay must be fucking awesome for that... but normally I don't make mixed drinks out of dark rums, only white; darks are too flavored.

 

For shots: Bacardi Fag Flavors

 

For mixed drinks: White rum (My choice: Don Q Cristal)

 

For sipping straight: Dark and aged rums (My choice: Ron del Barrilito 3 Estrellas, Don Q Grand Añejo... I'd hit the Mount Gay but buying that in PR is like ordering a steak at a seafood restaurant)

Uk all the way. I kind of figured you wouldn't be able to get Havana Club stateside because of the politics and bs. There are various ages/flavours you can get. I'm no connoisseur though, I just drink whatever I happen across. The 3 year old is the one they sell in most shops and bars.

- This bit is quite interesting:

 

Havana Club/Bacardi: roots of the conflict

 

In the nineteenth century, Havana's Arechabala family began making Havana Club rum from select sugar cane. During the first half of the twentieth century, the brand came to symbolize Cuban authenticity and quality. Unfortunately, in the 1950s the rum suffered some serious setbacks. The Arechabala family gradually relinquished its trademark on the domestic market and in the seven countries where it was registered.

 

1955: the Havana Club brand name is relinquished in Spain

 

This is why the Havana Club brand name fell into the public domain in Spain and the Dominican Republic in 1955, four years before

the Cuban Revolution and therefore independently of that event.

In the United States, the family had registered the Havana Club trademark and four labels featuring that trademark. The first of the five trademark registrations expired that year without being renewed.

 

In 1960 the heavily-indebted distillery was on the brink of bankruptcy when it was nationalized. The Arechabala family emigrated to the United States and Spain. In the United States

the family failed to renew the first four trademark registrations, as they had done in the other countries, because they had no intention of using it. A renewal would have cost just $25, and filing an affidavit of non-use is all that would have been required to keep

the trademark going without any obligation of using it. Therefore

the relinquishment is obviously voluntary. Havana Club definitively fell into the public domain in 1973.

 

1966: new trademark registrations

 

In Cuba, however, the new owners relaunched Havana Club on

the domestic and export markets. They registered the trademark

in 80 countries, including Spain in 1966 and the United States

in 1976. However, sales on American soil are impossible because of the US embargo against Cuba. Sales rise to over 200,000 cases per year.

 

In 1993, Havana Club and Pernod Ricard signed a far-reaching partnership agreement that resulted in boosting the Cuban brand's sales tenfold in five years. In 1998 the brand became "case millionnaire". The European group's arrival on the rum market

and the brand's increasing success alarmed Bacardi, which until then enjoyed a near-monopoly of the market image.

Bacardi produces rum in several countries, including Mexico, Puerto Rico and Europe, and sells it by playing on a supposedly Cuban image, carefully maintained by ambiguous advertising campaigns ("el mejor ron de Cuba", "Cuban rums since 1862" ).

 

1996: Bacardi sells rum from the Bahamas in the United States under the Havana Club brand name

 

In 1996, Bacardi had several cases of rum from the Bahamas distributed in the United States under the name "Havana Club", which led "Havana Club Holding" to file a complaint for fraud

and deception of consumers.

 

Bacardi tried to find heirs of the family that founded the brand.

A company called "Jose Arechabala International" was set up

from scratch in Liechtenstein in 1997. It sold Bacardi rights to

the trademark it never owned and that the family had long ago relinquished.

 

1996-1998: US legislation is changed in Bacardi's favor

 

Bacardi is close to certain American political circles and, in 1996 despite protests from the European Union, obtained a tightening

of the US embargo against Cuba through the Helms-Burton Act, named after two senators who are friends of theirs. In 1997,

the group also successfully requested the American authorities retroactively withdraw the permission granted in 1995 to sell

the trademark to "Havana Club Holding".

 

Further more, two years after Havana Club Holding's complaint was filed, a new tailor-made piece of legislation "section 211", was adopted in the US, favoring Bacardi's interests. This occurred a few weeks before HCH's complaint was scheduled to be heard before

a New York court. "Section 211", in defiance of international agreements on industrial property, retroactively forbids registration in the United States of trademarks that belonged to Cubans before they went into exile, even when those brands were voluntarily relinquished or had fallen into the public domain.

 

1999: "Section 211" makes it impossible to rule against Bacardi

 

In April 1999, the Southern District Court of New York threw out Havana Club Holding's case against Bacardi because of "Section 211", which was enacted 24 years after the Pernod Ricard's partners registered the trademark in the United States. HCH has appealed the decision based on the fact the law was applied retroactively.

 

In July, the European Union filed a complaint against the United States with the World Trade Organization for violation of their agreements on trade-related aspects of intellectual property rights (TRIPs).

 

- And on that note all I'll say is FUCK BACARDI!

Hooooly fuck... after two months of fermenting, my personal rum concoction is ready to go... I just had a shot of it and it kicks much ass.

 

http://www.micaminito.com/images/quenepa.jpg'>

 

28 quenepas (click the picture above to find out what they are), half a cup of brown sugar, and a liter and a half of rum. Mix em all together, stir to tear the pulp off some of the fruit, seal in a container with enough air and let it sit for 6-8 weeks.

 

Open it up and enjoy drinking it straight. The best part is, some of the quenepas with pulp still attached have absorbed the rum, so eating them is equivalent to about half a shot or so.

 

Oh hell yes this weekend will now rule.

Rum makes you pregnant. However, sometimes it's entirely

suitable to rum all over her face, too. The possibilities are endless.

Who the fuck thought that the MOJITO would be a great drink to make trendy? I can see it....some jerk was sitting at a bar in Cuba, and thought to himself " I know how I can get revenge on those bastards...."

And he was right, because now you walk around with a MOJITO in your hand trying to talk to girls in the bar, but you look like an asshole because you gots mint leaves all jammed up in your teeth......Motherfucker.

 

 

 

 

THE DEVIL!/ perfectly flawwed MOJITO-Muddle the mint leaves ever so gently with a cube of raw sugar, add ice, 2oz of dark rum, finish with a splash of soda and a lime.
