No other alcohol conjures up images of the Caribbean quite like rum. Tortuga has recently introduced two new rums to their stores, Sailor Jerry and Kraken, the perfect ‘manly man’ choice of drink.
Sailor Jerry is a straight up no nonsense rum which is crafted from a selection of rums distilled in the Caribbean. The rum is then infused with a one-of-a-kind mix of spices and natural flavours, including vanilla and a hint of cinnamon. The result is a high quality, traditional spiced rum, which can be enjoyed straight, mixed or in a cocktail.
Sailor Jerry rum is named after sailor and tattoo artist Norman “Sailor Jerry” Collins. Sailor Jerry spent half is life as a sailor, the other half tattooing sailors.
“The father of old school tattooing, Norman “Sailor Jerry” Collins was an innovator and a true independent spirit whose work is still revered today,”
Therese Griggs, sales and marketing representative at Tortuga says. “A master craftsman, his artistry and integrity remain timeless as does the drink that bears his signature. The rum is made the authentic way and is bold, spiced and smooth. Mix it up with something, or just pour it over ice and let the work speak for itself.”
