Cuban Rum

NPR's Tom Gjelten reports on a lawsuit filed by rum maker Bacardi for the right to sell rum under the "Havana Club" label. That brand is currently made by a French-Cuban joint venture. The dispute signals some difficulties that may lie ahead for U.S.-Cuban trade when trade relations between the two countries are eventually restored.
