Kick off summer with a spiced rum cocktail

Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum is named in honor of Navy veteran and American tattoo legend Norman “Sailor Jerry” Collins, according to William Grant & Sons. The spirit honors his values of freedom and originality and proudly blends and bottles Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum in the United States.
