KISS: Monstrum is an ultra-premium dark rum that comes from Latin America and the Caribbean. It was crafted with rums from Guyana and Jamaica that have been aged for at least 14 years in casks that used to hold arrack. The rum is bottled at 86 proof without any added sugar or flavoring, making for a well-balanced, elegant, and complex spirit. The vibrant design features several references to the band’s history with glow-in-the-dark details.

Rum history allegedly started in the Carribiens in the 17th century when they started to ferment and distill molasses, a byproduct of sugar production. Most of the Rum is aged in oak or ex-wine casks, giving its color and flavor.
