J.Wray Jamaica Gold and Silver Rum Coming to the United States

     This is really great to see, J. Wray and Nephew brand rums are the original rums of Jamaica, they have such a bold pot stilled flavor and are the rums of choice for the people of Jamaica.  The familar green and yellow label of J. Wray and Nephew Overproof Rum is legendary and I'm sure these two will follow in their footsteps.

     The oldest continuously operating rum producer in Jamaica, J. Wray & Nephew Ltd., is giving two of its classic rums a Jamaican inspired makeover, along with a new name for the introduction of J.Wray™ Jamaica Rum Gold and Silver.   “J. Wray & Nephew Ltd. has a special place in spirits lore with a legacy of more than two centuries crafting high-quality rums,” said Christine Moll, Category Director-Rum, at Campari America.   “J.Wray Jamaica Rum offers an enticing and authentic Jamaican rum to enjoy in flavorful cocktails.  The lively packaging firmly ties the rums to the brand’s storied history and ensures they visually stand out on the shelf.” 

   J.Wray Jamaica Rums replace Appleton Special Jamaica Rum and Appleton White respectively in the USA. The eye-catching packaging highlighted by traditional bright, vibrant colors evokes the alluring and free-spirited vibe characteristic of Jamaica.   Smooth and light-bodied, J.Wray Jamaica Rum Silver is a white rum that’s aged and filtered slowly through special charcoal filters. Clean and crisp, the brilliantly clear rum is light and fruity with pear and apple notes. This critically-acclaimed rum was recently awarded 91 points in the 2016 Ultimate Spirits Challenge.  This dazzling, warm golden rum is smooth and fruity with a rich body, long finish and hints of exotic spices. A gold medal recipient at the 2016 San Francisco World Spirits Competition, J.Wray Gold is already being recommended by the world’s top bartenders and spirits writers.
