Where to buy Rockstar Spirits
Tom Hurst launched Rockstar Spirits back in 2018, producing a range of seven premium spiced rums.
The spirits are readily available from a wealth of stores. According to the website, you can locate the rum from Sainsbury’s, Morrisons, Majestic Wine, Booths Supermarket, Selfridges, Amazon, and TheDrinkShop.com – just to name a few!
The ‘Two Swallows’ range from Rockstar Spirits includes the flavours: Citrus and Salted Caramel, Cherry and Salted Caramel, and Orange and Ginger variants. Likewise, ‘The Grenade Series’ comprises of 65% premium rums, including Pineapple and Salted Caramel, Grapefruit with Sweet Honeycomb, and Passionfruit and Salted Caramel. We’d love to get our hands on all of the flavours!
Not to mention, the packaging of the rum bottles appears to be a huge selling point. The vibrant colours and fun fonts will certainly captivate consumers.
Did the Dragons like the products?
It seems as though the Dragons were huge fans of Rockstar spirits, as Tom secured an investment for the rum range.
The drinks entrepreneur seemed to really impress the panel when offering them a bespoke cocktail, titled ‘The Dragons’ Daiquiri’. Plus, Deborah really liked the product packaging – which is always a plus!
The Dragons aren’t the only people keen on the spirits. The reviews on Amazon for Rockstar spirits practically rave on about the drink. One customer took to the review section, writing: “This is an absolute belter of a drink, so smooth and full of flavour, this has set a new standard. My shelf has a wide variety of spiced rums including supermarket staples like Kraken, Captain Morgans and Sailor Jerry’s, as well as my previous favourite Old J. Rockstar’s. Two Swallows easily beats them hands down, and is now the first bottle I reach for. Buy a bottle, you won’t be disappointed!”
Likewise, another wrote: “At £24 a bottle this is a very nice drink. Very smooth and very tasty, I have been looking for a spirit I can drink regularly that I don’t get bored of and this is it.”
