Old J’s rum history begins in 1740, when Admiral Edward Vernon put in place a reduction in the strength of the British Navy’s rum ration. This didn’t go down so well with the fleet, and to appease complaints that followed Vernon suggested the addition of limes and sugar to improve the drink - he became an accidental mixologist, and became known as Old Grog.
Old J Rum takes inspiration from and honours this suggestion, using Caribbean rum with a secret blend of spices, sugar, vanilla and Persian lime.
Admiral Vernon's Old J Silver edition has been infused the same selection of spices as their classic expression (particularly vanilla and Persian Lime), but with a base of white rum, meaning it can be used in cocktails without altering the drink's hue.
Fresh tropical fruits, ground cinnamon with a hint of gingerbread too, lime oil and sponge cake.
