London-based department store Harvey Nichols will also stock the rum.

The release is the second project between the brand and the London-born musician, whose real name is Joseph Adenuga, following a limited edition packaging design for Havana Club 7 in 2019.

“As the leading makers of super-premium rum, we are incredibly proud to introduce Rum of Skepta,” said Havana Club International’s global marketing director, Anne Martin. “This exceptional rum highlights our continued commitment to collaboration and community as we seek to create outstanding rums that will excite existing rum fans and resonate with a new audience of Gen Z consumers, of legal drinking age.”

Last month, the Chivas Regal brand owner acquired UK-based spirits e-tailer The Whiskey Exchange in a move to strengthen its e-commerce footprint.
