Legendary rock icons KISS make waves on the drinks market with KISS Rum Kollection – a new portfolio including the KISS Black Diamond Premium Dark Rum and KISS Detroit Rock Premium Dark Rum.
For a band who’s produced classic albums since the early ’70s, defining the musical tastes of generations of fans all over the world; what better way to celebrate their catalogue than with two premium spirits which pay homage to some of their most legendary moments?
KISS Black Diamond Premium Dark Rum takes its name and character from the rock monolith and closing song on KISS’s debut-album released 1974. Immortalized on one of the world’s greatest live albums – KISS Alive, Black Diamond was instantly destined to become a classic track, showcasing the song writing skills as well as the immediately identifiable vocals and characteristic chops of KISS. The label draws inspiration from the band’s early days, referencing both costumes and their iconic make-up, making it a pure treat for fans who grew up loving KISS and now discovering great rum. KISS Black Diamond Premium Dark Rum is an exceptionally smooth blend of Caribbean cask rums aged up to 15 years.
Taking its name from one of the fans’ favourite songs, “Detroit Rock City”, KISS Detroit Rock Premium Dark Rum matches the legacy of the song. Blended from a selection of the finest Dominican Republic dark rum casks aged 8 to 15 years, this exceptionally smooth rum holds high quality standards, having won a listing at Swedish monopoly Systembolaget via the blind tasting tender process.
Internationally acclaimed Master Blender for Brands For Fans, Daniel Henriksson, has together with the band created a balanced yet impactful rum that is equally appealing to rum-afficionados as well as discerning KISS fans all around the world.
KISS fans will also appreciate the bottle’s artwork, with its many references to KISS legendary double platinum awarded Destroyer album, which opens with Detroit Rock City.
KISS founding member, Paul Stanley, “When Brands For Fans approached us we suggested a KISS Rum Kollection. Our master blended rums now showcase individual distinct and unique nuances making them awesome to stand alone or rock out in a cocktail.”
