Free rum slushies to be handed out in Bristol

Spiced rum brand Dead Man’s Fingers is giving away thousands of free rum slushies in Bristol next week. The Cornish-born brand is visiting the city as part of a nationwide tour with its unmissable flaming skull RV truck. The slushies will all feature Dead Man’s Fingers’ iconic rum flavours, including passionfruit, raspberry and banana and cherry.

:Summer rooftop parties coming to historic Bristol venue And with the weather forecast looking sunny for the rest of the week, these cooling slushies could prove particularly popular. The truck will be in Bristol on Thursday (August 12), firstly near the Watershed between midday and 2pm.

It then moves on to College Green and Park Street (2pm – 5pm) and then Clifton Triangle between 5pm and 8pm. On Friday, August 13, the truck will also be heading to Cabot Circus, from midday until 8pm, before moving on to other cities. Aside from some refreshing rum drinks and photo opportunities, there will also be a host of fantastic Dead Man’s Fingers competition prizes to be won.

Dead Man’s Fingers started at the Rum and Crab Shack seafood and cocktail bar in St Ives, Cornwall and it has grown into one of the UK’s leading brands, specialising in unusual flavours such as Cornish Saffron cake and Pedro Ximenez ice cream. It can be enjoyed neat but also works well as a mixer in cocktails. If you’re planning on enjoying Dead Man’s Fingers’ complimentary beverages next week, remember to drink responsibly.
