Hamilton, Bermuda, November 19, 2020 – Bacardi Limited, the world’s largest family-owned spirits company, announced today that it has acquired 100% ownership of premium crafted and batched cocktail company TAILS. The announcement follows the successful relationship the two companies have enjoyed since Bacardi acquired a minority stake in TAILS in 2018.
Since it was established in London 10 years ago, TAILS has pioneered a hassle-free approach to serving premium quality cocktails in bars, restaurants and throughout the hospitality and events industry. TAILS cocktails are crafted using the Bacardi portfolio of premium brands and then pre-batched in bottles or on draught so that all bartenders, wherever they may be, can serve great tasting cocktails easily, quickly, consistently and at scale.
The TAILS range of classic and contemporary cocktails are all made with Bacardi brands and reflect how the company is constantly adapting its product offering to lead the latest consumer trends. The TAILS range includes the Classic and Berry Mojito, both made with BACARDĺ® rum; the Passion Fruit and Espresso martini cocktails, both made with 42BELOW® vodka; and the Garden Spritz made with BOMBAY® gin.
Since Bacardi acquired its minority stake two years ago, TAILS has expanded from the UK to 10 other markets across Western Europe, with more to follow.
