Rosie Crossman, brand manager at Franklin & Sons, commented: “We are extremely proud to launch the new Red Leg spiced rum and Franklin & Sons 1886 cola. Taking inspiration from the unique flavour combinations first explored by the Franklin family back in Victorian Britain, the 1886 vola includes West African kola nut and Colombian coffee beans, adding a unique twist to everyone’s favourite, the classic rum and cola.”
Kate Alexander, marketing & operations director at Red Leg Rum Company, added: “The secret to the great taste of Red Leg is all in the blending, the rum is left to rest in oak barrels and infused with Jamaican ginger and vanilla spices, creating a rum with an incredibly smooth taste. Adding Franklin & Sons 1886 cola adds a dimension of sweetness and is the perfect way to put together a classic serve, that can be enjoyed everywhere.”
