About this deal
From classic recipes like the Cherry Daiquiri to more modern creations like the Cherry Colada, there's no shortage of options when it comes to this delicious combination.
Cherry Bounce is a homemade cherry liqueur with a rich history and a delicious flavor. It's made by infusing pie cherries with a choice of liquor such as bourbon, rum, brandy, or whiskey, along with sugar. The mixture is then left to sit and develop its flavor over time. The resulting liqueur has a deep, not overly sweet, and not overly boozy taste that reminds us of the deep Bourbon roots of our country's South. It all started in 1740, when Admiral Edward Vernon enforced a reduction in the strength of the British Navy’s rum ration. When his men complained, Vernon suggested the addition of limes and sugar to make the drink more enjoyable.
As a bartender, I've seen countless customers walk through the doors of my bar, each with their own unique taste preferences. Some prefer their drinks strong and bitter, while others prefer something sweet and fruity. However, there's one flavor that always catches people's attention: cherries. Dana Frank has authored books and numerous articles on the subject of food and drinks, with a focus on demystifying the world of gastronomy for everyday people. Her infectious enthusiasm for all things culinary makes her the perfect person to guide you through the often confusing world of gastronomy.
It took over sixty trials before the perfect harmony of ingredients was found, and Old J’s smooth and spicy flavour profile was born. Old J has been created in honour of this unlikely mixologist who was known as Old Grog. However, Old J brings Vernon´s concept into the 21st Century by using the finest Caribbean Rum combined with our secret blend of spices, sugar, vanilla and Persian lime.
