But there's no sign of the spirit's popularity growth slowing down, and brand Palm Beach is launching five new rum liqueurs that will have us sipping well into autumn and winter.
The first two have already arrived in Tesco, a tried and tested Mango & Passionfruit flavour combination, and a more unique Banana & Butterscotch. Both are inspired by the "easy-going nature of the Caribbean."
Just like gin liqueurs, rum liqueurs are a lower ABV than rum and have the versatility to be enjoyed over ice, with a mixer or as part of a cocktail.
Clare Gibson, Marketing Director at ICB Ltd, which owns Palm Beach, said: "With people becoming more adventurous with rum-based drinking there’s a desire to experiment by trying new flavours and serves, which is where rum liqueurs come in, offering those wanting to venture into rum drinking a delicious introduction.
"With a lower ABV of 20%, they offer consumers the chance to try something new and exciting which has a sweeter profile and is more easy drinking than a full strength rum."
We're already dreaming up cocktails for these two and think the tropical banana and creamy butterscotch would be a dreamy mix with Cola for those with a sweet tooth. And the sweet mango and a tangy passionfruit sounds made for refreshing spritzes, punches, and light fruity cocktails.
The new flavours are now available to purchase online or in-store from Tesco at £10 per 50 cl bottle.
