Simply put the guys who started the company were Sailor Jerry fans. They created Sailor Jerry Limited to keep alive the legacy of the man Norman &lsquoSailor Jerry Collins. They started it as a small mom and pop clothing brand in Philadelphia collaborating with local artists to make leather goods sneakers t-shirts and other products featuring Sailor Jerry flash. Since Sailor Jerry spent half his life as a sailor (and the other half tattooing sailors) it was a natural move to create a spiced rum in his name. A cult started to grow around the rum and pretty soon it started to outsell anything else they made. Maybe because it was hauled around the globe by sailors or maybe because it just good rum has traditionally been the most prolific of the worlds spirits. Although a few other places lay claim to their own varieties the Caribbean is generally accepted as the heart of the rum world (which is why it where Sailor Jerry is and will always be distilled!) Rum has been intertwined with Caribbean culture for nearly 400 years coming into existence alongside the sugar industry. The 1600s were the coming-out century for rum. Quality grew by leaps and bounds and so did people taste for it. By 1789 a hogshead of the finest Caribbean rum was chosen as fit for the first presidential inauguration of an upstart nation called the United States of America. Today Caribbean rum distillers have well over 200 years of experience perfecting the art of distillation aging and blending. Adding spices to rum is an old sailors tradition. Those first rums were crude and harsh so seamen would blend and mix in any spices they had on hand to improve the rums flavour. Today the harshness is no more but the art of spicing rum is alive and well. Sailor Jerry is a straight-up no-nonsense rum. We craft the spirit from a selection of rums distilled in the Caribbean. Our master blenders marry the rums to our exacting recipe then infuse it with our one-of-kind mix of spices and other natural flavours most notably vanilla and a touch of cinnamon. The result is high-quality old-school spiced rum. An enduring classic not a fly-by-night fancy. On the nose -Intense vanilla dry buttery toffee and subtle cinnamon nots On the palate -Warm spices of cinnamon & nutmeg with rich vanilla. A long dry finish balanced with a subdued sweetness and a hint of burnt toffee
