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.
