This week Cruzan Rum introduced Cruzan Blueberry Lemonade Rum to its flavored rum portfolio. Launching nationally, their new flavor blends Cruzan White Rum with the essence of blueberries and vibrant citrus lemonade to create a unique “fresh fruit” spirit. It is made from natural ingredients including cane molasses and tropical rainwater using their unique five-column distillation process to create a clean tasting, high quality rum.
Cruzan continues to be a leader in the rum category and we see the demand for refreshing rum drinks continue to grow. This year, we created a new rum that would appeal to our loyal fans and new rum drinkers looking for a fun flavor option. The combination of Cruzan Rum with sweet blueberries and fresh lemonade makes this perfect for anyone looking to create a refreshing cocktail that captures the spirit of the season. – Brendan Lynch, Senior Director of Rum & Cordials at Beam Suntory
