Bacardi Reserva Limitada will be available from autumn

Bacardi is to launch its Reserva Limitada rum in the US.

Previously only available in Puerto Rico, the Bahamas, the Cayman Islands and Aruba, the rum will now be available in the US from autumn, Bacardi said this week.

Initially, 1,000 cases - six 750ml bottles per case - of Bacardi Reserva Limitada will be made available, with additional quantities expected to be released to the US in the future, based on availability.

Its launch is another sign that consumer demand for super-premium spirits has not abated in the US, despite some trading down in lower price categories.

The rum will be sold in select bars, restaurants and fine wine and spirits retail outlets throughout the US with a suggested retail price of US$110.00.
