Famous rock band Kiss is bringing its Drink It Up brand of spirits, which entered Europe, Japan and Australia last year, to the U.S., according to Rolling Stone. The initial release included only one expression, Black Diamond Rum, but several more Drink It Up spirits are joining Black Diamond in the U.S.

Detroit Rock Dark Rum, Monstrum Dark Rum and Distilled Cold Gin all are rolling out to the U.S. alongside Black Diamond Rum.

The Black Diamond and Detroit Rock rums are now available to purchase in 25 U.S. states at www.drinkitupbykiss.com for $44.99 and $54.99, respectively. Monstrum Dark Rum and Distilled Cold Gin will be available soon.
