The Hospitality and Tourism Management Department at the University of New Haven welcomed Bacardi’s Global Brand Master of Rum & Cane Spirits, David Cid to its campus on March 2. Renée Allen, Adjunct Professor for the Hospitality and Tourism Management Department, hosted special guest speaker Cid for his annual presentation on the history and production of rum to a full house of more than 60 students from the department’s rum and mixology classes. The students tasted molasses, the sugarcane derivative from which most rum is produced, as well as several Bacardi products. The flight consisted of Leblon Cachaça, Bacardi Superior, Bacardi 8, and newly-released Bacardi Banana, a product aimed at the Millennial generation, and one of which Cid was instrumental in developing.
