For Indians, every peg of Old Monk comes with a bit of sentimentality attached to it. It feels homely, intimate, and comforting. Alcohol consumers across the country are obsessed with it, and it makes perfect sense considering the drink’s unparalleled bittersweet flavour and, most importantly, affordable price. And what’s better is that Old Monk’s new ‘The Connoisseur Collection’ is here to push us further down the rabbit hole and convert dark rum admirers into devout fanatics.
This new line of rum consists of flavours like lemon, orange, apple, cranberry, mojito Et al. The livened up versions of the drink, especially the cola, cranberry and mojito flavours, contain slightly lower alcohol content than the regular Old Monk - making them the perfect replacement for the sugary alternatives we’ve had to live with for so long.
Packed in glass bottles with a unique build, this new range of flavoured rum is currently only available in the state of Karnataka, along with the city of Pune and Mumbai. But considering the positive response, it’ll be no time before Old Monk’s new collection is available across the country.
For now, you can drop by any of the stores listed on the brand’s Instagram page and pick one up for your next night in.
