British Heavy Metal Legends JUDAS PRIEST have released their first limited edition spirit to the Swedish market. The Judas Priest Spiced Rum packs a metal-like punch with spicy notes of arrack, vanilla, burnt sugar and raisins.
A desire to give the fans something beyond the music lead to a collaboration with Brands For Fans — together they have spent this year working on the product from flavor profiling to bottle design.
Band said in a statement: “We are thrilled to announce the release of a new rum produced together with Brands For Fans. The complex nature of this new blend and the general versatility of rum goes hand in hand with the music produced by us over the last 50 years. It’s rum with a touch of evil.”
Sari H. Wilholm of Brands For Fans added: “JUDAS PRIEST, a truly legendary band. Who’s not heard of them? Such an honor to be able to create this spiced rum with the band.”
Judas Priest Spiced Rum is released in a limited batch of 5,000 bottles on October 23 and retails at Systembolaget in Sweden for 349 SEK.
