Introducing J.Wray Jamaica Rum

Replacing Appleton Special Jamaica Rum and Appleton White, these new expressions deliver a distinctive new look. The name change more accurately reflects the rum producer’s 250-year historic roots.

The Brand

“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’s new Jamaica Rums offer enticing and authentic spirits 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.”

The Gold

A medium-bodied golden rum, J.Wray Jamaica Rum Gold is the perfect blend of fuller-flavored and lighter rums. 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.

The Silver

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.

J.Wray Jamaica Rums will first be available in Texas, Georgia, Louisiana, Washington DC, Maryland, Oklahoma, North Carolina, Virginia, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, New Mexico and West Virginia.
