While Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum is popular with men, brand ambassador Ashley Marsh loves the drink and wants to share with women as well as men. She will be sharing the Sailor Jerry spirit at Viva Las Vegas at The Orleans April 14-16.
According to Marsh, while men might like to drink Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum neat or simple serve, “it’s also versatile in a number of cocktail recipes that appeal to women as well.” Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum is Caribbean Rum blended with 100 percent natural spices and flavors with notes of cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla to shine through and provides a depth of flavor.
Marsh enjoys telling the story of Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum, created to honor Norman “Sailor Jerry” Collins, a Navy Veteran and the undisputed father of old school tattooing. “Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum embodies Norman Collins’ spirit, a man who was often quoted saying, ‘My work speaks for itself,’” she said.
One of her goals is to continue to share Collins’ story and the rum that bears his name. “Norman’s work inspired the tattoo world as we know it today and his spirit and Americana values are worth sharing. Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum is a premium rum created by some of the best blenders in the world,” she said.
Events during Viva Las Vegas include the debut of the Sailor Jerry Pop-Up Garage, The Sailor Jerry Tattoo Lounge hosted by Steadfast Tattoo Parlor, Sailor Jerry Presents Audrey Deluxe’s Burlesque Bingo and Viva Las Bowling #5.
