After a long day and getting through the evening rush hour, we’d want what everybody else wants – kick back, relax, no fuss, and more importantly, no nonsense. Hence, Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum has become our bestfriend! On its own, rum has traditionally been the most prolific o the world’s spirits. But wait, who would’ve thought that a straight-up, no-nonsense rum could come from the guys behind a pop clothing brand in Philadelphia?

See, the guys who started the company were Sailor Jerry fans through and through. They created Sailor Jerry Limited to keep alive the legacy of a man named Norman “Sailor Jerry” Collins. So, it was a natural move to create a spiced rum in his name and when a cult following started to grow around the rum, it started to outsell anything else they made.

Why a cult following, you ask? Mainly because Sailor Jerry’s master blenders have managed to infused rum with one-of-a-kind mix of spices and other natural flavours, most notably vanilla and a touch of cinnamon. Thus, making the rum less crude and harsh, resulting in a high-quality, old-school spiced rum that’s versatile enough for a variety of cocktails to suit a person’s palate. We would know, we’ve tried it ourselves, thanks to our friends from Sailor Jerry Malaysia!


Here are some ways to arm yourselves with a trusty bottle of Sailor Jerry rum and spice up your happy hour after a long day (or week)!
