Diageo launches Captain Morgan LocoNut

Diageo rum brand Captain Morgan has released a summer coconut rum shot, Captain Morgan LocoNut, which is made with Caribbean rum, coconut liqueur, spices and natural flavours.

The move follows the release of Captain Morgan Cannon Blast into the shots category in late 2015, and Jack-O'Blast for Halloween 2016.

Captain Morgan LocoNut is packaged to look like a coconut in a round bottle, similar to its predecessor Cannon Blast, and features a scratch and sniff logo that gives off a sweet aroma of coconut. 

The brand suggests that LocoNut is served as either a chilled shot or as part of a cocktail. LocoNut is also gluten-free.

LocoNut (40 proof, 20% ABV) has an RRP of $14.99 for a 750ml bottle, and will be available in the USA from specialist stores.
