Since 2015, an annual independently produced event now takes place in Hawaii every June called the "Sailor Jerry Festival" to honor Collins's legacy and Chinatown roots on Oahu. The multi-venue event includes live music, DJ's, cabaret performances, an art show - featured artists have included Sailor Jerry's great-grand niece Madison Thomas, local artists, and Masami Teraoka, movie screenings, a pin-up fashion show – where models wear outfits designed from Sailor Jerry flash, neighborhood tours, and tattoos available at three area shops, including Sailor Jerry's last location.

Its recipe has been tweaked to make it a little more palatable in other countries. In the United Kingdom, the recipe leans toward the sweet side to broaden its appeal. Sailor Jerry Rum Prices and Other Rum Brands As a sipping rum (on its own no ice) it is certainly not my idea of smooth. In the mouth it burns like a fairly young mixing rum. Rough around the edges and quite harsh. Unusually, it has a lot of oak and tobacco tones. It is initially very sweet on the tip of the tongue but it soon becomes very bitter. At 40% it is quite strong for a spiced rum and the finish is very hot with a lot of alcohol burn. When a cube of ice is added (okay I’ve added 3 and another good slug of the rum) it does certainly mellow out the bitterness, reduces the alcohol burn and bitter aftertaste considerably. Like this, the rum could be sipped. It wouldn’t be the most complex or rewarding of sipping experiences though. It’s pretty flat to be honest. There isn’t a great deal of flavour coming through this way. a b c "Norman Keith Collins". Tattoo Archive. 2015. Archived from the original on November 5, 2011 .

At the time, it was the only place on the island where tattoo studios were located. His studio became China Sea Tattoo after his death. His earlier studios were at 434 South State street, 150 North Hotel Street and 13 South Hotel Street.Spiced rum is also made and sold by Captain Morgan, another major brand in the rum industry. Captain Morgan and Sailor Jerry are two of the greatest brands in the market and close competitors as a result. Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum makes one damn-tasty drink, no matter how you like it. How about Sailor Jerry Mojito?

When Collins was at sea, he and his shipmates would infuse their rum rations with spices to make it easier to drink. And so, what better way to pay tribute to a man who spent so much of his life travelling the oceans than by celebrating those familiar mahogany hues and spiced flavourings. Sailor Jerry made significant contributions to the art of tattooing. He expanded the array of colors available by developing his own pigments. He created custom needle formations that embedded pigment with much less trauma to the skin. He became one of the first artists to utilize single-use needles. His tattoo studio was one of the first to use an autoclave to sterilize equipment. [6]Beautiful hula dancers always greeted sailors when they arrived on the island. Who is Sailor Jerry? Having said that the presentation of this rum is quite good. It uses imagery from Collins’ tattoo’s and the label does have an oldie world feel to it. Its simple and uncluttered. Previously the rum gave an indication of its taste (blended with Lime and Vanilla), that is now more mysterious as it just states it is blended with natural spices. Again the labelling seems to vary worldwide. The bottle I’m testing is for the UK market. Again if you see anything different in different territories feel free to leave some comments/pictures.
