As our Summer days drift away, Sailor Jerry Rum has created some inspired cocktails to make the most of the season. The spiced rum traces its heritage to the iconic Norman “Sailor Jerry” Collins, known as the father of tattooing and rock and roll subculture. Born in 1911, Collins was a tough old Navy sea dog who set up his famous tattoo shop in Honolulu in the 1930’s. Over the next 40 years, he carved out a unique style that would change the face of tattooing forever. Perfecting a deftly-crafted, boldly-lined style that incorporated both American designs and traditions with Asiatic coloring and sensibilities, the iconic “Sailor Jerry” tattoo has become one of the most recognizable icons of Americana, representing a unique attitude and spirit of rebellion. Collins also revolutionized the industry by advocating for regulated standards of sterilization and sanitation that established the levels of cleanliness expected in modern day tattoo shops.READ MORE
