In 1740 Admiral Edward Vernon enforced a reduction in the strength of the British Navy's rum ration. When his men complained, Vernon suggested the addition of limes and sugar to make the drink more enjoyable.
"Old J" has been created in honour of this unlikely mixologist who was known as "Old Grog". "Old J" however brings Vernon's concept into the 21st Century by using the finest Caribbean Rum combined with our Secret Blend of Spices, Sugar, Vanilla and Lime.
