From within the Distilleria emerged Alessandro Martini, Luigi Rossi and Teofilo Sola. They changed the company name to Martini, Sola & Cia in 1863 and it was in 1879 that the Sola family sold its interests to the remaining partners who renamed the company Martini & Rossi, as it stands today.
Malibu Jamaican Rum 80s
The product was originally made from fruit spirits, flavoured with rum and coconut flavouring in Curaçao. Originally, the product was used to simplify the making of Piña Coladas by bartenders. When the product took off production was then moved to Jamaica, and the quality of the ingredients used were improved. The brand was sold by Diageo to Allied Domecq for £560m ($800m) in 2002 and later to Pernod Ricard.

Dansk LA Lager advert from the 80’s featuring Ian Botham.
Sir Ian Terence Botham, OBE (born 24 November 1955) is a former England Test cricketer and Test team captain, and current cricket commentator. He was a genuine all-rounder with 14 centuries and 383 wickets in Test cricket, and remains well known by his nickname “Beefy” While a controversial player both on and off the field at times, Botham also held a number of Test cricket records, and still holds the record for the highest number of wickets taken by an England bowler.
A talented footballer as well as a cricketer, Botham had to choose very early in his career whether to play professional football or cricket. In March 1980, in an effort to get fit after an injury, he joined Scunthorpe United football club, where he played as a centre forward and made 11 appearances in The Football League.
On 8 August 2009, Botham was inducted into the ICC Cricket Hall of Fame.
