BACARDÍ® Rum Turns Up The Heat With New Mango Chile Flavor
BACARDÍ Mango Chile

BACARDÍ® Rum announces the U.S. launch of its latest flavored rum expression, Mango Chile, which captures the sweet and spicy flavors of the Mexican fruit snack in every bottle. After an incredibly successful launch in Mexico, the world's most awarded rum brand will bring Mango Chile stateside for the very first time, arriving in U.S. liquor stores nationwide today.

With a blend of mouth-watering natural mango extracts, fiery chili spice, and smooth BACARDÍ® white rum, Mango Chile is best enjoyed as a chilled pour, served in a 1.5oz shot glass and–just like the mango treat it is inspired by–garnished with a Tajín® Clásico Seasoning rim to achieve the perfect balance of sweet, mildly spicy and tangy chili lime taste. For those looking for a cocktail serve, Mango Chile is an ideal spicy yet sweet alternative for BACARDÍ® Superior in classics like the Mojito and Daiquiri.

"We're so thrilled to bring Mango Chile to the U.S., especially after its knockout launch year in Mexico, which led BACARDÍ to become the top selling flavored spirits portfolio in the country," said Maria Galis, BACARDÍ's Global Innovations Director. "As a leader in the rum category, we're always looking to push the boundaries of what our rum can do. The sweet and spicy mixture of Mango Chile is the perfect flavor expression for summer, especially as an easy-to-drink chilled shot. It's smooth, crisp and tastes like it came straight from your local fruit cart."

BACARDÍ Mango Chile retails at an SRP of $12.99 for a standard 750 ML bottle, available today at nationwide liquor stores, bars, and restaurants, as well as mobile delivery services such as Instacart. It will also be featured at BACARDÍ's highly anticipated music festival programming throughout the summer, with custom Mango Chile pop-ups and sampling opportunities at Governor's Ball, Lollapalooza, Sueños, and more.

Mango Chile joins the robust BACARDÍ flavored rum portfolio as the eighth flavor innovation currently available in the U.S. The portfolio also includes BACARDÍ Coconut, BACARDÍ Lime, BACARDÍ Limón, BACARDÍ Pineapple, BACARDÍ Dragonberry, BACARDÍ Raspberry, and BACARDÍ Tropical.
