Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum Returns To Celebrate 2018 Fleet Week New York
Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum brings its American-made blend to this year's Fleet Week New York to celebrate service men and women and to honor the legacy of its namesake, Navy-vet Norman "Sailor Jerry" Collins. Now in its 30 th year, Fleet Week New York will see more than 2,500 sailors, Marines, and Coast Guardsmen participating in city-wide events on May 23-29, 2018 to honor their service and dedication.
"Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum has celebrated Fleet Week New York for many years, and each time it's a great reminder of our nation's history and heroes," said Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum East Coast Ambassador Anthony Bohlinger. "Norman 'Sailor Jerry' Collins was a proud member of the Navy, and often used his enlisted time as inspiration for his world-famous tattoos. We're honored to serve his legacy, the rum he inspired, and celebrate our brave service men and women at Fleet Week New York."
Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum will once again be onsite to welcome the visiting service members with sponsored specialty drinks as a true-red, white & blue thank you at North River Lobster Company, Heartland Brewery, Off the Wagon, and Houston Hall in New York City.
Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum continues to support the programs and services of USO of Metropolitan New York. "The USO appreciates the steadfast commitment of Sailor Jerry," says Cathy de Silva of the USO of Metropolitan New York.
Norman 'Sailor Jerry' Collins considered his time in the United States Navy as an integral part of his later work, and his crew became his family he would later tattoo many of his designs on these American servicemen. Norman's intense love of ships, grown from his time on the sea, even led to him earning his master's papers on every kind of vessel for which you can get tested. A rebel and a visionary, this legacy inspired his eponymous liquor, and Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum continues his rebellious mission in the best way possible bringing hell-raising fun to Fleet Week New York. With specialized cocktails being served throughout the week, it's the best way to celebrate 30 years of patriotism, the dedicated service of the United States armed forces, and Norman himself, a true American-made legacy.
