Sailor Jerry

Rum For Breakfast?  

Friday 29th – 31st August 2014
 
Our friends at Sailor Jerry recently told us that they will be (and I quote) “bringing its bold-as-hell spiced rum and good vibes to the pleasure grounds of Larmer Tree Gardens in Salisbury, for no-frills art and music festival, End of The Road.”  Nothing unusual there of course – Sailor Jerry are often supporting music festivals. My attention was caught by one of the serves they are presenting.
 
Check out the details and see if you aren’t just the little bit curious too…

Bacardí Gran Reserva Maestro De Ron

It’s Something For The Traveller…  

HEADLINE: “BACARDÍ announces the launch of BACARDÍ® GRAN RESERVA MAESTRO DE RON, a super-premium white sipping rum, exclusively in Global Travel Retail”
 
Unfortunately, without a reason to fly somewhere, it seemed like the scope for us tasting it first hand was pretty much zilch.  Fortunately, the opportunity to speak to Marc Plumridge, the Global Brand Ambassador for Bacardi Global Travel Retail presented itself along with a glass or two of the rum in question.
 
So, just what do Bacardi think a super-premium white sipping rum is?

Penny Blue XO Rum Batch 002

The Second Coming…  

Berry Bros & Rudd unveil the second release of Penny Blue XO and I’ll admit that whilst the first release was not in any way at all a bad product, it just wasn’t super exciting.  Safe?  Yes.   Easy sipping?  Yes.  Memorable? Well…  
 
So can Batch #002 live up to the promises of Batch #001?
