Kopparberg unveils its first spiced rum

KOPPARBERG is breaking into the world of rum with the release of its Cherry Spiced Rum.

Available to purchase from June 22 in a 70cl bottle or RTD can, the spirit – which has a 37.5% ABV – has notes of “bold cherry” and is said to be inspired by the “animals that come alive at night in the dark Swedish forests surrounding the town of Kopparberg”.

The release is also said to be best enjoyed over ice in a tall glass, mixed with coca cola and garnished with a lime wedge.

Rob Salvesen, head of marketing at Kopparberg, said: “Cherry Spiced Rum is a particularly exciting addition to our current range, allowing us to show the darker side of our spirit. Wherever we spend the summer, Kopparberg Cherry Spiced Rum is here to offer something big, bold and flavourful, to be enjoyed with friends as the tempo picks up and the darkness kicks in.”
