Buchanan’s Pineapple Is Bringing The Tropics To Your Glass

Pina Coladas are one of our favorite warm-weather cocktails, but we’ve never made them with any spirit other than rum…until now. With a new bottle of Buchanan’s pineapple, we tried their Bucha-Colada recipe in our blender and loved the tropical results.

The sweet juicy taste of Buchanan’s Pineapple is crafted with Scotch Whisky, pineapple, citrus, and other natural flavors to take you to a warm, brighter place. It’s the perfect ingredient for those warm weather cocktails like the Bucha-Colada or Piña Fizz. For the adventurous drinkers that like making frozen concoctions, this would be a great base for popsicles. I’m thinking maybe some frozen mango, pineapple juice and Buchanan’s pineapple might make a great frosty treat.

“For years, Buchanan’s has been welcomed into the culture and celebrations of the Hispanic American community, often mixed with pineapple juice, resulting in one of our most popular serves, the Buchanita, which helped inspire us to create this new blended whisky flavor,” says Joyce He, Director of Buchanan’s Whisky. “With Buchanan’s Pineapple, we are combining one of the most beloved flavors in Hispanic culture with the same distinct smoothness from the House of Buchanan’s people have enjoyed for more than 130 years.”
