“Old Js classic combination of spices, sugar, vanilla and lime makes Admiral Vernons the best tasting liquid in the spiced rum category!” – Tom Hurst, Old J Creator.
In 1740 Admiral Edward Vernon enforced a reduction in the strength of the British Navys 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 Vernons concept into the 21st century by using the finest Caribbean rum combined with our secret blend of spices, sugar, vanilla and Persian lime.
