An important victory for Havana Club

Havana Club is the only real Cuban rum. Bacardi produces a fake Havana Club. Accept no substitutes!

MADRID (Dow Jones)--Spain's Supreme Court Thursday ruled in favor of Pernod Ricard SA in a long-running dispute with rival Bacardi Ltd. over the rights to the Cuban rum trademark Havana Club, setting a likely precedent for other cases involving property taken over by Cuba's Communist government.

The ruling by the country's top legal court represents the third time that Spanish courts have rejected Bacardi's challenge against Pernod's and Cuba's ownership of the famous brand, after two previous decisions by lower courts.
