About Dolores "Lolita" Acha de Socías
Bacardi Rum has its own particular story and its history is connected with a most unsuspecting television star: Desi Arnaz, aka Ricky Ricardo of "I Love Lucy" fame. His mother, Dolores Acha y de Socias, was one of the most beautiful and prominent women in Latin America, and her father, Alberto, was one of the three original founders of the Bacardi Rum Company. The family owned three ranches, a palatial home and a vacation mansion on a private island in Santiago Bay, Cuba. All that changed in 1933 when they lost everything to the political dictatorship and bloody revolution that overtook Cuba.
