PRODUCTION DETAILS: This premium spiced rum is crafted with fine spirits from Trinidad and Barbados. More than sixty trials were carried out, until just the right blend of Persian lime, spices, and sweet vanilla was hit upon. Legend has it that Admiral Edward Vernon, also known as Old Grog, decided in 1740 that the rum ration for the British Royal Navy should be reduced. Needless to say, many sailors were none too happy, and the Admiral responded by suggesting they give their meagre tot a boost with limes and sugar. Whatever the truth, Admiral Vernons Old J Spiced Rum won a Silver Medal in the Spiced Rum category at the Rum Masters 2019. It's gorgeous with ginger beer, ginger ale, cola, in your favourite rum cocktail, or sipped straight up.

- "YES YES YES YES YES!!! OH MY GOD!! Thank you!! The taste is spot on, My life feels complete once more." - Kathryn Wright - Old J customer review on www.facebook/oldjspicedrum
- In 1740 Admiral Edward Vernon enforced a reduction in the strength of the British Navy's rum ration. When his men complained, Vernon suggested the addition of limes and sugar to make the drink more enjoyable.
- "Old J" has been created in honour of this unlikely mixologist who was known as "Old Grog". "Old J" however brings Vernon's concept into the 21st Century by using the finest Caribbean Rum combined with our Secret Blend of spices, sugar, vanilla & lime.

Perfect served over ice with coke or ginger beer and a couple of fresh lime wedges. Top Tip: Drag a lime wedge around the top of the glass before serving.
- Nose: A blast of vanilla and lime.
- Palate: Well rounded spice and toffee, cut through with limey goodness .
- Finish: Sweet, smooth vanilla.
