Bacardi Vanila delivers authentic vanilla flavor in a smooth spirit. Only pure Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla, from the southeast coast of Africa, is used in the creation of Vanila. Following a process developed in the early 19th century, the vanilla plants are pollinated by hand, one flower at a time. Then each fruit is steamed and dried in the sun. Finally, it is combined with Bacardi Rum to produce a light, sensual spirit.
