Synopsis: En 1862, Facundo Bacardí apostó por crear en Cuba una pequeña destilería de ron, una bebida que hasta entonces solo consumían marineros y obreros. Pronto el ron Bacardí se convertiría en la bebida favorita de la isla y quedaría ligado a la identidad cubana.

Recorriendo la historia de la familia Bacardí, que siempre ha estado en primer plano en todos los grandes acontecimientos de la historia de Cuba ––desde la Independencia hasta el actual embargo pasando por la Revolución y Bahía de Cochinos–– Tom Gjelten ha escrito una épica narrativa que explica la Cuba moderna, sus tormentosas relaciones con Estados Unidos, la ascensión de Fidel Castro —de la que se ofrece una perspective hasta ahora desconocida— y la violenta división que sufre la nación cubana desde entonces.
