Rockstar Rums

We’ve all heard that rum is the new gin. So far, so not really. But no one really asked why gin sky-rocketed? And the answer is simple: the generation who grew up eschewing straight gin for flavoured drinks like Hooch can now drink flavoured gin – in selfie perfect glasses.

And rum has finally cottoned on. Or at least, one brand in particular is now leading the way: Rockstar Spirits.

Made with rum from Guyana’s legendary Diamond Distillery, Rockstar’s flavoured rums fall under 2 brands: Two Swallows and the overproof Grenade range. Having been burnt before with rum – though our shimmering Phoenix Tears rum did chip at the mould – we started out with their Two Swallows lip-smacking Orange & Ginger and Candied Citrus & Salted Caramel.

And they were a knockout. So we added the dreamy overproof marriage of Pineapple & Salted Caramel that is the Pineapple Grenade. Which proceeded to blow our socks off. So onwards and upwards we go.
