The Bacardí family has been in the rum business for a long time. Since 1862, they've faced earthquakes, fire, revolution, prohibition, and exile, none of which could tame their irrepressible spirit.
To bring these stories to life, Bacardí has collaborated with two of the most iconic names in the world of graphic novels – writer Warren Ellis and artist Michael Allred – to create The Spirit of Bacardí, a graphic novel that tells the stories behind the iconic brand and its origins in Cuba.

America, as you prepare to fire up the grill and enjoy the fireworks this Independence Day, Newcastle invites you to celebrate Independence Eve on July 3rd, and imagine how great America could have been if Britain won.

And just like his landmark comedy series, he believes the American version of our country pales in comparison to the British original. In his charming British accent, Stephen makes a convincing case for what could have been the greatest country on Earth: Great Britain 2.
