"As you sense them. Well first of all there. Is this silver dry Which is how they labor label it this white stuff that no cuban in his right mind would drink. It is used for cocktails in cuba Cubans of of an older generation claim. That you would never have used a an un- aged raw sugarcane room to make cocktails that you would've used at least a three year old from But then you get these older. You know the the ones that are labeled five years etc with they all have in common is that they're dry. They have a very dry flavor to them. The one that is the least dry is this This sort of randomly labeled onyango have anna club The the dryer you get the shorter the finish and cubans like the taste to be Syrupy almost to be intrusive strong and intense and have a long finish. So i am a big believer in that too. I think that some of the best. The rooms that i have tried. I've tried in puerto rico at their distillery. They have kind of so later Quality to them. What is it you say so later. So little quality so let at which is it's it's sorta the blending dare young rooms older rather than produce a kind of a syrupy of fikre tastes to the rum Those are very very popular today.

But the family that That is the author of the recipe. has now been sort of four grounded in the company's history and that's significant because really until this lawsuit was issued or took place Know the cardi's were very happy with the buckeye Correctly pronounce it. We're very happy to sort of you. Take the credit for everything. And you would never have heard about this this recipe holder recipe holding family. we're not for the desire to authenticate the cubans.

And they were very upset about Anything that would remind the consumer of communism or of the triumph of the revolution. As you know fidel would've called it so so they really diminish that they kind of wanted to project an idea of sort of Abstract latini that or abstract caribbean identity and And i think that most americans came to drink boccardi rahman eighties in the early nineties and and and really bought into that idea so now for them to reverse course and say no.

What what's the current situation between cardi in puerto. Rico ricard well. I don't know that it has changed in any way The cuban government is very committed to working with its partners per node required. And as far as i know that by the administration's not taken any steps to To back the the the lawsuit that acade- has filed so we we're still at a standstill. There i was curious about how much the cuban people themselves know about this rivalry. Do you have a sense that everyday cubans persons on the street are aware of this battle. I'm certain that they are completely unaware. I do think they have very strong opinions about rum. And in particular havana club as they have experienced it on the island. But they know anything about this Really would be impossible. It'd be the cuban government has very little transparency with regard to its own budget and its own income of or the states expenditures. So you know something like this will not make headlines unless it's a politically expedient so if they are to win their battle then i assume you know it'll be all splashed all over the the national newspaper but until then nothing well for our listeners and perhaps others who are joining us fresh In one corner you have per. No claiming havana club must be made in cuba than in the other corner. There's bacardi who says they can make it in puerto rico since they have the recipe history and cuban family identity on their side. We're talking about the founders in this case in your mind who has the real stuff. I think it's very interesting to say that my knowledge of cuban rum and whereby be produced. It comes from the island and in cuba. When havana club started becoming a regular item. On display and dollar stores stores it sold to foreigners and in hotels cubans were convinced that it was not being made properly because they weren't using the old barrels that are still out in audience. In which is the far eastern province and they were using metal barrels and distillery. You know that was relatively recently acquired in two modern so that there was no way that what was being replicated. There in cuba would resemble You know the the real stuff to that. Argument is not on the table here. Between these two companies they are both focusing all the different points of view but one is focusing on the recipe and the other is focusing on the ingredients and the location and neither company are talking about how the room is actually aged And what kind of equipment is being used. My sense is that the really old barrels that are in the oldest distilleries that were used by the bucket. Family have nothing to do with the creation of this savannah club and those are being used for another government label that is mostly only available on the island is extremely popular because it is so good and that that label is santiago. W-we So you have to buy it again for hard currency in dollar stores or in hotels and tourist facilities but it is mostly consumed locally and it is widely enjoyed. I mean it's also my favorite rum of all those available ooh you you anticipated my next question but i want to clarify something here. Are you suggesting that the real stuff is defined by the barrels that they're they're aged cubans would say that is true That you know the first of all the barrels were talking about that. The family used in the nineteenth century and through most of the twentieth century were made out of cuban mahogany and that has a particular Density to it and it's one of the hardest woods in the world So those trees that were used to to build these or to construct these barrels. You know where three hundred year old trees two hundred year old trees in warmest And they're still available. You could still see them. In certain pockets of forest in both seneca in an audience in the mountains so that either cubans have very strong connections. Iceland cubans have very strong connections to To these kinds of icons of their identity. The mahogany that these barrels are made out of seems to have a particular has cachet. We can say. Well it's it's clear why this is such a fight certainly from the cuban side because as as we were saying earlier. This is a big part of cuban history cuban identity You know what what is real. What is legitimate. I mean all of these questions are coming into play. What does it mean to be cuban in a sense. But i wanna get back to something you were saying to your palate. You prefer the stuff made in cuba. Let's talk about tastes. The ricard havana clubs pretty hard to find in the us. Because of the embargo. And i would imagine you have been able to try both versions Yes yeah you tell. Tell us a little bit about the distinctions.

"Bacardi the company's chairman wilson calls mukunda bacardi's office in bermuda. Hey for cuneo. I've just spoken with one of our lobbyists in washington and doesn't sound good and well. It's not yesterday. The office of foreign assets control gave pernod ricard the trademark transfer license for a vanna club. This is horrible. Oh well it gets worse today the. Us patent office granted them an extension on the old havana club trademark with that they'll own the trademark until twenty twenty six. That's ridiculous for no ricard's trademark die ten years ago. We're the ones who've been making and selling havana club in the us not them. I know i know well what happened. It's hard to know for sure. Some people in washington think it could have something to do with the obama administration reaching out to cuba. Maybe it gave pernod ricard a chance to negotiate rick. I thought this was over when the supreme court ruled in our favor four years ago. What our options now. Well if the us government gives pernod ricard the trademark and allows it to sell of anna club it will be violating section to eleven. That means the us will be breaking. Its own law. Okay then we're going to sue the us government. It's a frigid windy february day. In two thousand sixteen in washington at a house judiciary committee hearing chairman. Darrell issa california. Republican is about to turn up the heat on the obama administration. Forgiving the us trademark for ravana club back to pernod ricard and in his crosshairs is state department representative curt tongue. What i really wanna know is. This was a vanna club on table as the obama administration negotiated normalization with cuba congressman to my knowledge. Havana club was not discussed with cuba. I say shakes his head in disbelief. You're really telling me vanna club. The same of anna club that cuba has complained about to our government. For years and years didn't come up at all during weeks. Of negotiations congressman. Cuba has certainly raised the nevada club issue with us but to my knowledge there was no quid-pro-quo involving havana club. Mr tall even assuming that there really was not a quid-pro-quo by giving the ivana trademark to cuba and pernod ricard this administration is violated. A law called section to eleven law doesn't allow for transfer of confiscated trademarks. This was just the opening. Act for eissa. The main event is about to come. I suppose to bottles out from under the podium where he's sitting and hold them up their different in shape and color but both are branded havana club. One of these bottles is made in puerto. Rico where fourteen hundred american workers earn forty thousand dollars each and every year. The other is made in cuba by people making about two hundred forty dollars a year now because of whatever game. The state department is playing with cuba people in puerto rico or going to be laid off. What do you think of that. Mr tong my understanding is that the economic impact isn't yet known in this matter will be settled in the courts. I said doesn't get the answers. He wants congress. Leaves section to eleven on the books. Now bacardi hopes that'll be enough to keep pernod. Ricard's cuban made havana club out of the us. But congress and president obama are on a collision course. It's march twenty. Sixteen and president. Obama is in havana. Thank you so much. Thank you very much president castro. The people of cuba thank you so much for the warm welcome. It is an extraordinary honor to be here today. Change is in the air. Obama is the first. Us president to visit cuba in more than ninety years and other things in cuba are changing to just days after obama's historic visit the rolling stones. Play a free outdoor concert in front of half a million people in havana in the sixties. Fidel castro banned the group. But now that it seems cuba's opening up there's a festive mood in the air. Bacardi is working overtime to prevent that from happening but cuba and pernod ricard are about to face a new sobering reality. It's june twenty sixteen in miami but in the luxury fana- hotel. It feels more like nineteen fifty eight showgirls and stilettos clatter across hardwood floors as a ten piece band belts out classics from the golden age of cuban nightlife waiters and traditional guevara shirts. We've through throngs partygoers. Serving free cocktails all made with bacardi's version of anna club in a quiet corner of cardi rep shows off two bottles of their rum to a reporter. Check this out for the first time we've gotten aged version and an unabridged version based on the original recipe. Isn't this the third or fourth time. You've put something on the market called of anna club. What's new now yeah. Those earlier versions were rolled out to establish bacardi's ownership of the name of hannah club. The reporter picks up a bottle of the age. Drum runs his finger over an oak tree. The center of the label see it's almost identical to the labels the attitude ella families when they were in cuba. This is the real havana club using the family recipe. Okay but how can you call it havana club. When you're making it in puerto rico and the same way a company names it's drink arizona. Ice tea when they're not making it in arizona. It's evocative just months later for no ricard's savannah club has a relaunch event of its own in havana. Bruno ricard has the us savannah club trademark in hand and the embargo seemingly on the way out. It's gaining momentum against bacardi and it wants the world to know it so the french. Ceo of vanna club jerome kutab. Beeson hose a press conference. So does this mean you're scrapping. Your recently trademarked tavern brand. Yes we are when we weren't sure whether we could get the license to renew our trademark evangelista was our backup option but now that relations are normalised and we have the trademark back. We'll be pushing havana club. Do you think your havana club will be on sale in the. Us soon tell you. What if the embargo ins tomorrow. We're ready to start shipping immediately. It seems the moment is coming. When consumers will decide the fate of bacardi and pernod ricard's claims to vanna club but a change in leadership both in havana and washington. We'll put that final showdown on.

"He's making a drink. Called el presidente sort of martini made with dry vermouth orange liqueur grenadine in havana club rum. I'm as happy as i can be right now on bottle. Finally after all these years. I can sit in my backyard and drink havana club. Bacardi prematurely relaunched vanna club with the help of the h e bala family. The thinking is if no one owns the trademark. They might as well claim it by force. Ramon takes a sip of his drink. It tastes just like we used to make it. Maybe better actually. It tastes like freedom. The chases the drink with a long drag on a cigarette then turns melancholy. Our family was important. One some bottle. We mattered in cuba. We had shipping and sugarcane and rum fidel. Took that off from us. He stole our company. He took everything we had. But he didn't take this. Ramon snatches the bottle of anna club. Hoists it up and turns to face south toward cuba. You didn't take recipe for then. You didn't get the real havana club you bastard. Castro may not have the original recipe for havana club. The cuban government does have something the us wants and as political leaders change in washington and in havana. Cuba's leaders signal. They're ready to trade but their terms may be unacceptable.

"Juba took over the brand by force then claimed the us trademark. We think that's wrong sanchez. Pauses there's something else. He wants the committee. To ponder also congressman. It doesn't seem fair that a legitimate owner of a trademark should be denied that mark just because they're not allowed to make their products in their former geographic location. So you think a company like yours which is no longer able to do. Business in cuba should be able to acquire trademark for a product. That might have cuban trade name even though it's not produced. They're like perhaps havana club. Yes sir like havana. Club and current law doesn't allow for that kind of geographic miss description. No sir and we think that should change. Cobos smirks at sanchez. I guess you would. Mccarty is defending itself in a lawsuit over the havana club. Trademark now is that not correct. Yes sir that's correct well. Why should congress intervene before the trial. We could suit approve. Our trademark was stolen and violates fach rules but we would avoid years of litigation of congress changes the law right away.

Pierre i think clinton is in office. We are a bit bacardi's bought a lot of friends in washington lately. So rat change. When we've got other ways to fight bacardi. Shift nine hundred cases of this so called havana club rum to the united states. But we share the us trademark for havana club with cuba. We miss you.

Bacardi has been stuffing a lot of money into political coffers hoping to influence u. s. policy toward cuba and the politicians have been receptive bacardi's lawyers are even helping helms's office draft the language of the helms-burton bill. A key provision will let cuban-americans sue anyone using property in cuba that had been seized from them and that includes a lot of people named cardi must be something like five hundred bacardi's who are now americans. That's a lot of potential claims yen. And i'm on. Nato allies in american to if he sues for the havana club brand the lawyers told me he could scuttle the whole deal between pernod ricard cuba. Then make sure that fundraiser is sold out pro executes. His orders a few weeks later senator. Helms is introduced at the fundraiser by the president of bacardi's usa division. The event raises seventy five thousand dollars for hells two months after the fundraiser. The helms burton bill passes a house committee. It's formerly known as the cuban liberty and democratic solidarity act but many in washington. Call it the bacardi bill. As soon as the new legislation passes one pro at his desk in the modernist office. Tower bacardi is constructed in miami. He's plotting his next move when his secretary calls. A reporter is on the line. Mr everyone is saying that. Coty is single. Pushing this bill forward. What do you say.

Ibm's of the world where peanuts unfortunately for bacardi peanuts aren't enough to grease the wheel of american democracy as the weeks go on helms-burton stalled in the senate because democrats don't like that. The legislation will antagonize. Us allies with interests in cuba. Neither does president bill clinton if the cardi bill is going to become law.

"System and the soviet bloc itself is about to have a rendezvous with a wrecking ball for shadowed by president. Ronald reagan himself. Mister gorbachev tear down this wall in november in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine less than two years. After reagan's pronouncement berlin wall does indeed fall for years later. The soviet bloc is in political upheaval and its trade deals. In subsidies to cuba have almost completely evaporated now. Fidel castro has to do something unthinkable. He has to reach out to capitalists. It's the summer of nineteen ninety-two at cuba's government palace. Castro is a dinner for one hundred twenty five foreign investors and executives most are americans with companies that include american express and procter and gamble executives murmur to each other about cuba's crushing economic crisis. I heard the cuban peso lost half its value against the dollar on the black market and even if they get dollars is nothing to buy. Yeah there's no meat no soap. The buses aren't even running people line up for hours to buy whatever food they can find and the country's at least nine billion bucks in debt. You're gonna need a fire. Sale is stay afloat. Then we ought to be able to find some good bargains here right. Maybe they'll sell us the oil refineries or compromise or the casino and the wrong finally. Castro holds up his glass and waits for his guests to quiet down. He has a proposal but sees no reason to phrase it politely for these capitalists the counter revolutionary rats who already thinking about how they can turn this country into another miami. They wanna make it a safe haven for gambling and corruption again. but capitalism and capital are not the same the executives exchange looks. Castro's message is clear. Capitalism may not be welcome in socialist cuba but capitalists money. Most certainly is the next morning in paris patrice. Ricard is sitting at his breakfast table reading the paper. The burly ricard is the ceo of french. Spirits conglomerate per no regard and the son of the company's founder. His eyes stop on a headline about opening to investors. He throws down his paper and calls the head of the company's north american division. Michelle bore me show. Did you see what's happening in. Cuba castro is selling stakes in everything they own or have you heard about rum. Is it on the block. I don't know he hasn't said anything specific about the rum distilleries. You understand what it means to us if they would don't you have. Anna club is a great brand name. It's an english for something and bacardi rum's can't match it for quality besides castro's never going to let the bacardi's back to cuba card is still make cuban style run though but if we bought advantage club we'd be making real cuban rum in cuba. Get to havana right away. And make an offer days later wars walking through a distillery and a small seaside town outside havana. The cuban government built this distillery in nineteen seventy seven specifically to make havana club. Boards stops and turns to the cuban trade minister to make his pitch for. No riccar wants to invest in havana club without strengths in marketing and distribution. We could bring your brand to the world. I'm sorry but we're not selling our rum to outsiders. I don't understand you're selling mining rights and sugar mills and all manner of other businesses. Why not the wrong. Rum is our national jewel. Selling havana club would be like selling you cuba itself. There will be no rum deal. When bore codes ricard with bad news. He's not dissuaded. Go back make the.
