Made with a blend of Caribbean rum flavoured with spices, sugar, vanilla and Persian limes, this is a premium strength ‘limited edition’ (exactly how limited is not stated) of Old J Spiced Rum.
Inspired by Admiral Vernon who on 21 August 1740 ordered that the daily half-pint tot of neat, high-proof rum issued to sailors on British ships be replaced with two servings of a one quarter of a pint, diluted 4:1 with water. He further dictated that lime juice and sugar were made available to add to this.
