Finger Liquor Good: KFC teams up with Dead Man’s Finger to create herbed and spiced rum

Wednesday 16th Aug 2023 |

Kentucky Zing meets Cornish Soul for a tasty new collab. Launching on the 16th August, KFC and Dead Man’s Fingers have partnered up to create a one-of-a-kind 11 Herbed and Spiced Rum. And trust us, it’s finger(s) lickin’ good.     

The fried chicken connoisseurs and ‘Rumthusiasts’ have been working to bring fans an all-new bespoke blend, inspired by the flavours of the Colonel’s 11 herbs and Cornish heritage of Dead Man’s Fingers Spiced Rum.  

Although the Colonel’s recipe remains a secret (sorry folks), we can reveal it has the perfect balance of our herbs and spices including black and white pepper, together with the freshly fried goodness of our golden breading that makes our chicken taste so damn good. Infused with the unmistakeable notes of Dead Man’s Fingers spiced rum, the new tipple also has whispers of creamy caramel, vanilla, treacle toffee and nutmeg…*chef’s kiss*.  

To be enjoyed with a splash of cola or in a cocktail – as long as you’ve got your glass of 11 Herbed and Spiced Rum in hand and a bucket of chicken in the other, you’re set. 

To get a taste of the good stuff, order the rum straight to your door by visiting The Drop Store, or Amazon for £25. 

Think we’d launch the tastiest collab of the year without a celebration to match? To see in this collaboration, and as a tribute to Dead Man’s Fingers coastal origins, the unlikely duo are opening the doors to an exclusive pop-up Chicken and Rum Shack in the heart of Margate on the 1st and 2nd September.   

Rivalling Glasto’s Rum Shack, KFC and Dead Man’s Fingers are inviting fans to a shack full of chicken and rum located right on Margate’s iconic seafront. Not only is it filled with finger lickin’ features and a whole lot of free chicken, we’ve also copped the help of an expert mixologist who will be on hand to serve up a bunch of Dead Man’s Fingers-approved cocktails, including Zinger Punch, The Colonel’s Colada and Fingers Lickin’ Good, all made with Dead Man’s Fingers Rum.  

And the best bit, you don’t even need a ticket. So, grab your flock, head down to get your dose of free chicken and raise a glass to the new tipple.
