About Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum 


Sailor Jerry cocktails are originally made with sailor Jerry Spiced rum. Sailor Jerry is a blended rum flavoured with a vanilla punch, lime and different spices which is based on the original recipe by a popular tattoo artist, Norman ‘Sailor Jerry’ Collins who died in 1973 that is why this rum is named after this popular tattoo artist. The label of sailor Jerry rum bottle is embellished with one of Collin’s popular tattoos. 

The taste and aroma

So, the aroma is going to make your taste buds irresistible. The taste is quite elegant. It tastes like a dry spiced rum with young sappy woody notes, green pepper, gingerbread, almonds, vanilla and plump dried fruit.

At 40% ABV and a little touch of sweetness, sailor Jerry is properly spiced rum rather than extremely sweet, liqueur-like of some ‘spirit drinks’. So, if you are looking for an original spiced rum, Sailor Jerry should be on the top of your list.
