Bacardi Debuts New Limited Edition Rum, Reserva Ocho Rye Cask Finish

August 30, 2022

Bacardi is officially launching Reserva Ocho Rye Cask Finish, the second installment in the rum brand’s limited-edition cask finish series. The new aged rum offering rolls out nationwide this month as part of the brand’s five-year collection, and follows last year’s release of Reserva Ocho Sherry Cask Finish. A new Cask Finish Series variant will debut every August through 2025, each year featuring a different flavor profile. The 45% abv Rye Cask rum retails at $33 a 750-ml.

“Last year’s Sherry Cask variant performed extremely well during its limited release, so we’re looking forward to seeing how this year’s Rye Cask variant and those down the road perform as we continue to experiment with different casks,” Bacardi rum’s VP Americas Lisa Pfenning recently told SND. “There is absolutely an opportunity to entice dark spirits category drinkers with aged rums, both for sipping and in classic cocktails.”—Daniel Marsteller
