Major Lazer and Bacardi have been brewing up something very special for rum fans. Following a series of collaborations, from creating epic international music nights, to supporting upcoming Caribbean rhythms – for their next venture, (and for the first time in Bacardi’s 150-year reign), the pair will be making a rum variant. For their rum edition, Bacardi’s Maestros de Ron (that’s master blenders to you and me) and Major Lazer’s Diplo, Jillionaire and Walshy Fire, have created a smooth blend of Caribbean flavours with notes of tropical fruit, hints of cedar, and dashes of vanilla and almond leaves.

“Creativity is in our blood. We create music on pretty much a daily basis, but creating our own rum is the stuff of dreams. We’ve worked with Bacardi to create this unique blend, something that we feel really embodies The Sound of Rum and links rum and music in a way that’s never been done before”. Said Jillionaire of the collaboration. The Bacardi X Major Lazer rum edition will be available from early December, exclusively on Amazon while stocks last.
