About KISS Black Diamond Rum
Known for their timeless rock classics as well as their extravagant makeup and stage outfits, Kiss is widely regarded as one of the most influential bands in the history of rock music. Today, the band is still going strong after 50 years in the music industry and more than 100 million albums sold. The band teamed up with Brands For Fans for the release of Drink It Up by KISS ― a portfolio of premium spirits.
Founded in 2012, Brands For Fans is a Swedish company that operates on the global market and specializes in working with bands and artists who want to go into the spirits business. They've already worked with several legends that include Judas Priest, Ozzy Osborne, Motörhead, Slayer, Scorpions, In Flames, Rammstein, and Ghost, releasing so-called "liquid merchandise." The Drink It Up by KISS lineup currently consists of 3 different rums and a gin.
Launched in 2020, Kiss: Black Diamond is named after the iconic song from the band's debut album. It's a blend of Caribbean rums from the Dominican Republic, Barbados, Guyana, and Guatemala. Aged from 3 to 15 years in ex-bourbon casks, the rum was bottled unfiltered at 80 proof. The design is a reference to the band's early history and their iconic image. The rich, oaky, and fruity spirit has garnered several prestigious awards in the few years since its launch.

Rum history allegedly started in the Carribiens in the 17th century when they started to ferment and distill molasses, a byproduct of sugar production. Most of the Rum is aged in oak or ex-wine casks, giving its color and flavor.
