Manchester-based drinks distributor, Flagship Brands, has launched a premium bottled beer infused with Cuban rum, called Bachata (ba-cha-ta), targeted at the UK on and off trade.

Bachata is made using quality lager which is blended with a dash of golden rum to create an exciting new flavoured beer. A hint of orange zest is included which adds a vibrant edge to the smooth vanilla and caramel notes.

With the flavoured beers category on the rise and golden rum being one of the most buoyant categories in the spirits sector, the brand has already achieved great recognition resulting in a listing with trendy bar chain, Revolucion De Cuba.

Neil Macleod, Sales & Marketing Director at Revolution group said: “We are excited to introduce Bachata into Revolucion de Cuba bars. It’s a premium product with an element of fun and it fits well with our brand. I’m sure our customers will enjoy it.’’

Flagship Brands is known for importing Russian vodkas such as Flagship and Matrioshka and is associated to Baltic Beer Company, owners of Viru Premium Estonian Beer.

The RSP for Bachata is £1.40 - £1.50.
