NEW Cruzan Blueberry Lemonade Rum

Cruzan® Rum introduces the addition of Cruzan® Blueberry Lemonade Rum to its impressive portfolio of premium, flavored rums.  Available nationally, this refreshing new flavor blends fine Cruzan Rum with the essence of ripe blueberries and vibrant citrus to create a well-rounded spirit bursting with the taste of fresh fruit.

Cruzan Blueberry Lemonade Rum takes lemonade, a classic summertime staple, to the next level by infusing it with the bright flavor of freshly picked blueberries.

It is made from natural ingredients including cane molasses and tropical rainwater, using a unique five-column distillation process, staying true to Cruzan’s dedication to creating the cleanest-tasting, highest-quality rum on the market.

“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.”

Cruzan Rum recommends enjoying its newest flavor in an ice cold cocktail while embracing Cruzan’s “Don’t Hurry” mindset, which encourages rum fans to take the time to sit back, relax and savor every sip.
