Bacardi’s many rum flavors include pineapple. It bottles Bacardi rum-branded products and employs more than 200 people. Bacardi USA, the sister distribution company, has leased warehouse space at One Imeson at 1 Imeson Park Blvd. for 20 years, Schuchts said. That operation is about 8.5 miles southwest of NorthPoint and 3 miles south of the bottling plant.

Jacksonville-based Bacardi Bottling Corp. operates at 12200 N. Main St., 6 miles west of the NorthPoint facility. “Bacardi needed more space and more efficiency,” said Schuchts, principal of industrial, land and office leasing.
In October, Bacardi Bottling Corp. Operations Center Director Darrin Mueller said the Jacksonville plant ships more than 8.6 million cases of rum each year. Mueller said it was on track to exceed that by almost 1 million cases in 2020. Of that, 95% is shipped domestically. Bacardi spokespeople have not responded to several requests for comment.
He said the NorthPoint building, which is under development, has higher ceilings “and a fair amount more efficiency.” Schuchts said Bacardi will move in the first quarter from 292,000 square feet at One Imeson into a 351,000-square-foot building at NorthPoint.
