About Sailor Jerry-Sailor Jerry is a straight-up, no nonsense rum. They craft the spirit from a selection of rums distilled in the Caribbean. Their master blenders "marry" the rums to their exacting recipe and then infuse it with their one of a kind mix of spices and other natural flavors, most notably vanilla and cinnamon. The result is a high quality, old-school spiced rum. An enduring classic...truly not a fly-by-night fancy. Check this out...
