Kopparberg is launching its first ever rum-based booze and it’s spiced cherry flavour – and exclusive to Asda.
The dark red drink comes with a bold cherry flavour and is sure to please everyone who loves a fruity kick to their drinks.
You can get the spirit straight in 70cl bottles or cans of it pre-mixed with cola, which sound absolutely delicious!!
The bottle of spiced cherry rum is 37.5% ABV and will set you back £18 as part of the promotional launch price offering in Asda. After that, the bottle will be £20.
The 250ml canned premixed rinks will cost just £5 for four in the promotional launch price, and will be upped to £6 after.
What’s more, the new drinks are completely suitable for vegans and gluten-free folks.
The serving suggestion is 50ml of spiced cherry rum over ice topped with the cola of your choice in a tall glass, with a lime wedge for that fancy cocktail feeling.
And if you’re not a fan of rum but love all things cherry flavoured, why not opt for the cherry flavoured Kopparbeg cider that the brand launched in January.
Both of the new Kopparberg products will be available from next Monday, June 22nd, and are bound to sell out so be quick! Use the Asda store locator here to find your nearest one.

All the latest supermarket rules for families and couples shopping together
Everything you need to know…
Supermarkets have released the latest updates on how couples and families should safely shop together.
Many shoppers have been left confused and overwhelmed following a flood of new lockdown restriction rules throughout the easing.
Throughout the lockdown supermarkets have limited the number of shoppers within the store which has often meant couples from the same household and families have been split up with crowds of people waiting outside.
Asda is continuing to limit the number of customers inside stores to help everyone abide by social distancing rules.
However, Asda has created a ‘one adult per trolley rule’. This rule doesn’t apply to children or anyone shopping with carers.
At present, Tesco’s rule remain the same, which advise people to do their shopping alone where possible.
While Aldi encourages customers to reduce the number of shoppers inside the store from each family, there aren’t any rules in place.
A spokesperson said: “In order to help with social distancing, we are encouraging all customers to try and reduce the number of family members they bring with them into our stores. Of course, we ask that all store staff use their discretion with children and parents.”
Sainsbury’s is also reducing the number of shoppers inside at any one time to help keep safe distancing and reduce queues, until the end of July.
Their official website explains: “Our store teams will be asking groups with more than one adult to choose one adult to shop and will ask other adults to wait. Children are welcome if they are not able to stay at home.”
Like most, Lidl also has a crowd control system in place, however there is no official rule regarding banning shopping with a partner.
The official Lidl website states: “This includes positioning security guards or designated team members at our store entrances during busy times of the day, to keep track of how many customers enter our stores at one time.”
