We tried the rum brand who wowed This Morning viewers with intense Banana Flavor

Rockstar Spirits are a brand which I have grown to love with their enticing flavours.

Whether I have been going on a night out, a weekend cabin break with the girls or sitting watching a sunset on a rmeote beach- I have enjoyed a rum or two from this rum specialists. The flavors are so unique compared to any others on the market at the moment (I believe anyway), with banana, cherry and pineapple & salted caramel being all my favorite flavors of their’s.

Rockstars Spirits have an incredible range of tasty rums to get stocked up on for the summer months, with plenty of flavors that even if you don’t particularly like rum, they could convert you.


We had to laugh, because me and my frends took one of the gorgeous bottles to a log cabin weekend and wondered why we were a little more merry than we expected… we took the Pineapple & Salted Caramel grenade flavor which is a whopping 65 %… and we were drinking it like juice… WHOOPS!

After appearing on This Morning with Phil & Holly, then last week going viral being back on the popular TV show (with new super fan Vernon Kay tasting the Banana Bomb powerhouse flavour), we can imagine the rum brand is going to be a huge hit thissummer.

Rockstar Spirits was launched in November 2018 by Thomas Hurst, 46, who waved goodbye to a 20-year corporate career in the drinks industry to realize his dream of launching his very own spiced rum brand from home in Manchester.

After winning investment on 2021 series of Dragons Den the brand has gone from strength to strength and has been recognized for its consistent quality in the equivalent of the Rum Olympics – the Rum and Cachaca Masters.

One of their bestsellers, Pineapple Grenade, is a premium overproof spiced rum. Pineapple Grenade is imported from Guyana and distilled at 65% ABV from the world famous Diamond Distillery.

Diamond Distillery is one of the worlds great rum distilleries with a rich history dating back to the 1650s. Once the super premium spirit arrives in the hands of Rockstars Spirits, it’s lightly infused with a secret spice blend alongside the hero flavors of pineapple and salted caramel.

Our verdict…

Rockstars light and tasty Citrus & Salted Caramel flavor is the perfect picnic addition

So, anybody who knows me, knows I just love the outdoors.

Any chance I get to go on an adventure and set up camp for a sunset, I will. So, packing a bag with a bottle of rum and a picnic and heading to the beach is idyllic to me.

These rums are perfect for a summer trip as to me, they just taste of the summer (and make me dream of being on a beach in the Caribbean at least. I have to be able to taste the fruits to be able to enjoy an alcoholic drink these days, so the Rockstars Spirits are a personal favourite.

I feel like they are quite a luxurious drink, which reflects in the price bracket. This being said, I would much prefer to spend a little more on the Rockstars bottles than ANY of the other supermarket choices available, they win on price and flavor for me.

My favorite has to be the pineapple grenade mixed with some fresh lime and cranberry juice.

And, if I was to pick my favorite for before a night out (and not as strong) it would have to be the Cherry Bomb flavour.

I love this one with fresh lime and diet coke- it’s like an alcoholic Dr Peppe!

You can pick up various flavors from Amazon, Selfridges and some local supermarkets too including Sainsburys and Morrisons.
