KISS has always been the gold standard when it comes to licensing and merchandise. They seemingly always find new products to put out, but the latest edition to their portfolio could very much be filed under, “How did this take SO long?!”

The band just announced that in partnership with Brands For Fans is their very own gin label appropriately named Cold Gin after the song of the same title from their 1974 eponymous debut album.

KISS officially announced its partnership with Brands For Fans in September 2020. Since the announcement, Brands For Fans launched the KISS Rum Kollection which features Black Diamond Premium Dark Rum and Detroit Rock Rum.

As for Cold Gin, Brands For Fans notes, “Perhaps the most highly anticipated by fans and the most likely to cause a stir amongst collectors is the announcement of KISS Cold Gin.  Named after the legendary song written by Ace Frehley and released in 1974, the gin is due for launch before Summer this year, in perfect time for gin & tonic season.”

An exact launch date for Cold Gin is not currently known, but so far, it appears to only be available for pre-order overseas. However, this is KISS we’re talking about. If money can be made, it’ll be available stateside sooner than later.
