Get Stewed with Sailor Jerry- Sailor Jerry Rum Revives the Spirit of the Islands with New Cocktail Recipes --

Philadelphia, PA May 26, 2004 -- Gyro Worldwide, owner of the legendary Sailor Jerry line, introduces new Sailor Jerry Rum cocktail recipes, just in time for summer. "After sipping martinis all winter, the public is hungry for variety – and Sailor Jerry Rum is what they need to shake things up," said Larry McGearity who operates the Sailor Jerry label.

Named after the man credited with reviving the ancient art of tattooing back in the early 20th century, Sailor Jerry Rum is distilled in the U.S. Virgin Islands and is flavored with a hint of cherry and a variety of spices.

Straight up or Stewed, Screwed and Tattooed—No matter how you slice it, Sailor Jerry Rum is a ballsy 92-proof strong, but very drinkable in any cocktail recipe.

Inspired by the mystique of island life Sailor Jerry created with his work, the new drink recipes revive the spirit of The Honolulu Tattoo district – where sailors drank, consorted with women, and imprinted their biceps with pictures solid and resonant enough to last a lifetime.
