USA: Sip On A Slice Of Summer With Malibu’s® Newest Flavor – Malibu® Watermelon

Malibu® is bringing us a sip of summer this spring with the launch of Malibu Watermelon, the brand’s new rum-based twist on one of the season’s hottest flavors. Made with natural watermelon flavors, Malibu Watermelon brings the taste of summer to backyards, poolsides, porches and any sunny scene in between no matter the season.

“With the Watermelon flavor trend growing nearly 40% year over year2, we’re excited to extend the Malibu portfolio with this season’s popular flavor,” said Regan Clarke, Vice President of Marketing for Malibu, “Our new Malibu Watermelon is delicious and makes it easy to mix up cocktails that provide that summertime feeling all year round.”

Despite the impacts of COVID-19, last year Malibu had the most successful flavor launch ever after releasing Malibu Strawberry. This year, Malibu’s newest flavor is all about the juicy taste of watermelon. This new watermelon addition extends Malibu’s flavor portfolio with one of summer’s hottest flavor trends. Every 750ML Malibu Watermelon bottle has an ABV of 21%, while continuing to deliver on the signature and smooth rum liqueur taste which the brand is known for. The new addition of Malibu Watermelon channels summer in a bottle for any occasion in need of #ABitOfSunshine. Malibu lovers can easily mix, serve and share summer-approved recipes like the effortless Malibu Watermelon & Soda or warm weather classics, such as the Malibu Watermelon Mojito.
