New Rums

Cruzan rum has officially unveiled a trio of blended aged rums under its new super-premium Distiller’s Collection range. Rolling out this month, the lineup includes Cruzan’s new Estate Diamond Dark and Estate Diamond Light rums (each priced at $19.99 a 750-ml.), both of which are aged between five and 12 years. The range also includes returning expression Cruzan Single Barrel ($29.99), which is made from a blend of vintage rums aged up to 12 years and bottled one cask at a time. The trio, which are all intended to be consumed neat, on the rocks or in cocktails, marks Cruzan’s latest effort to move upmarket, following the brand’s debut of premium rum horchata entry Velvet Cinn ($20) this summer. Last year, Cruzan was up 3.4% to 750,000 cases in the U.S., according to Impact Databank.

New Early Times Bottle

Brown-Forman is introducing a new Hunter’s Edition bottle series for its Early Times Kentucky Whisky brand into national distribution this month. Early Times’ 2013 Hunter’s Edition is packaged in a brown and green camouflage design, celebrating sportsmen and the great outdoor traditions. The 80-proof, limited edition offering retails at $11.99 a 750-ml. Early Times’ U.S. depletions were down 1% to 564,000 cases in 2012, according to Impact Databank.
