Here’s Four Nautical Drinks We Made with Sailor Jerry

Sailor Jerry started out as a small clothing brand intent on preserving the legacy of Norman ‘Sailor Jerry’ Collins, the father of old-school American tattooing. The brand espouses his traditional value system, supporting all different walks of creative individuals who feel as strongly about the nature of their work as Sailor Jerry did about his.

Just like the Man himself, Sailor Jerry Spiced is bold, flawless and precise. Its spirit bears Jerry’s signature of old-school values of independence, hard work and unyielding standards of craftsmanship. It all comes down to standing up for what you believe in, and Sailor Jerry believes in making it the authentic way, the way men drank it back in the day. That means it’s distilled to 80 proof (40% ABV), spiced and smooth.

It isn’t some kind of pretender spirit. The nose is smooth and shows spicy notes balanced with vanilla and toffee. Its taste reveals subtle spices balanced with sweet vanilla and caramel, as well as notes of cinnamon, nutmeg and almond.

A straight-up handcrafted classic, Sailor Jerry Spiced can be sipped neat or poured over ice. It also mixes just right in classic drinks such as Sailor Jerry & Cola or Sailor Jerry & Ginger and other classic tipples. Just don’t go dropping any tiny umbrellas on it – that just wouldn’t be right!
