It’s mango season in the Caribbean and while many of us are enjoying the many varieties of mangoes hanging low on trees everywhere in the islands, Bacardi is giving those who can’t enjoy that pleasure the opportunity to do so in a different way.

The world’s best-selling and most awarded rum has announced its newest innovation,  Mango Fusion, a one-of-a-kind product that fuses the ripe flavor of mango with a recognisable hint of orange, creating an unforgettable taste experience.

Bacardi USA Inc Mango Fusion Rum

Bacardi rum created the flavored rum category when it launched Bacardi Limon in 1995. The Mango Fusion joins the lineup of flavored rums both on- and off-premise and is available in 750 ml size for a suggested retail price of  US$14.99, in addition to 50 ml, 200 ml, 375 ml, 750 ml, 1 liter and 1.75 liter sizes.

“Mango is one of the most popular flavors on the market today, with its light, crisp profile,” said Toby Whitmoyer, vice president and brand managing director, rum category, at Bacardi U.S.A., Inc. “As leaders in the rum category, we’re committed to innovating to meet our consumers’ needs — and Bacardi Mango Fusion delivers on that promise,” he added.

The new product launch is supported with national digital media, on- and off-premise sampling and promotion.

Bacardi Mango Fusion is a Bacardi original flavor that’s great as a shot drink or mixed with fruit juices, lemon-lime soda or sweet and sour mix for a twist on cocktail favorites.
