Firebox launches Galaxy Dust Rum – a shimmering supernova in your cocktail glass

TIRED of the same old drinks? Firebox has just launched something out of this world…

Firebox is known for creating quirky products (Tiny Hands we're looking at you), and the newest launch is no exception.

The new Galaxy Dust Rum is a shimmering rum-based spirit that supposedly resembles the look and taste of our galaxy.

That's thanks to the presence of a chemical known as ethyl formate, reportedly present at the centre of the Milky Way – and also responsible for giving raspberries their unique taste. 

The rum has a 20% ABV, a sweet-tart raspberry flavour, and it can make an excellent present for someone who loves novelty drinks.

The Galaxy Dust Rum is exclusively available from Firebox, priced at £19.99.
