Pirate’s Grog, the five-year aged Honduran rum, gives you a chance to get into the spirit evoked by Captain Jack Sparrow who hits cinema screens again this summer in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.
Captain Jack Sparrow is back on our cinema screens in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. This time, the fifth outing for Captain Jack, the rum-drinking pirate is in search of the trident of Poseidon while being pursued by Javier Bardem’s undead sea captain and his crew.
Audiences have enjoyed the action-adventure sequel while the film has also gained plaudits from critics too. Richard Roeper of the Chicago Sun-Times said the film worked well as a standalone entry in the series for new audiences or a follow-up to previous adventures.
He said Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales provides “swashbuckling comedic spectacle, thanks to the terrific performances, some ingenious practical effects, impressive CGI and a steady diet of PG-13 dialogue peppered with not particularly sophisticated but (I have to admit) fairly funny sexual innuendo.”
I have to admit, Captain Jack is one of my favourite characters played by Johnny Depp. He clearly loves playing him. He knows the character inside and out, and again chews the scenery in this latest outing for the rum-loving seafarer.
And all that rum doesn’t half get me in the mood for a tipple. Thankfully, I was recently introduced to Pirate’s Grog, a five-year aged Honduran rum. Pirate’s Grog has captured the spirit of Captain Jack Sparrow and the world of pirates and ocean battles with a wonderful presentation that includes a personalised scroll, treasure chest packaging, and cork bottle top.
Aside from aesthetic appeal, the rum would surely earn Captain’s Jack’s approval. Aged in American oak, bourbon barrels for five years, the rum is then blended in small batches on the Caribbean island of Roatán where folklore tells of pirates frequenting.
The rum is great for mixing – I tried it in a Dark and Stormy (rum, ginger beer and a lime wedge) but is probably best enjoyed straight, with or without ice. This a rich sweetness to this rum that reminds of vanilla or butterscotch with fruity notes too.
The only rum exported out of Honduras, the 37.5% Pirate’s Grog is an ideal addition to a connoisseur’s collection or alternative to other regional rums.
