- Alcoholic drinks maker Distil said it had launched ready-to-drink RedLeg Spiced Rum and 1886 Cola in collaboration with Franklin & Sons, the premium soft drink, tonic and mixer brand.

Available shortly through a major UK national retailer, the premium 250ml can has a 5% alcohol by volume (ABV), with the company describing the beverage as a 'unique and delicious' blend of RedLeg Spiced Rum, infused with vanilla and ginger, perfectly paired with Franklin & Sons 1886 Cola and a twist of lime.

'Global Brands will handle distribution for this particular product; the remainder of our portfolio distribution is unchanged. We are delighted to enter this fast-growing category,' the company said.
