To kick off the annual Sydney BarShow Week, the Puerto Rican rum giant Bacardi hosted the official launch party for the BarShow at the Marble Bar in Sydney in the spirit of the early 1900s.

The event also marked the 100th Anniversary of the legendary cocktail, the Daiquiri.

The invite only event was due to kick off on Sunday evening; when I arrived people were already queued up waiting to enter the bar, most of them wearing fashionable and glamorous 1920s-1950s attire as suggested by the dress code.

The best dressed would win a bottle of Bacardi's new Superior Heritage Limited Edition rum, which has the same alcohol strength as it did 100 years ago.

Is the author implying that the proof would be barrel strenth?

Sounds like a very well done event.

Thank you for posting

It is not barrel strength but 44.5% as opposed to the normal 37.5%. The event was great fun and I hope there will be something similar next year.
