KFC Collaborates With Rum Brand Dead Man's Fingers On New Beverage

QSR fried chicken chain KFC has partnered with British Spiced Rum brand Dead Man's Fingers to launch a new rum variety containing the global food brand's renowned 11 secret herbs paired with the drinks brand's Cornish heritage for last week's National Rum Day.

The new drink, titled 11 Herbed and Spiced Rum, is the chicken chain's first ever spirit and is available for purchase online for a limited time only.

The new rum is balanced with the herb and spice mix which includes black and white pepper, mixed with KFC's freshly fried golden breading. The spirit is then infused with Dead Man's Fingers' spiced rum to provide notes of caramel, vanilla, treacle toffee and nutmeg.

Further to its online presence, the new spirit will be available at a pop-up Chicken and Rum Shack in Margate on 1st and 2nd September where fans will have the chance to try the limited-edition rum whilst being treated to free chicken too. The seaside pop-up will also feature a range of Dead Man's Fingers blended cocktails, including Zinger Punch, The Colonel's Colada and Fingers Lickin' Good, all made with the brand's rum.
