MADE THE OLD-SCHOOL WAY. 92 PROOF. BOLD AND SMOOTH AS HELL.
The Sailor Jerry recipe is based on the tradition of sailors improving the flavor of their on-board rum rations. (The first nation to abolish issuing sailors daily rum was the U.S., which did so in 1862. New Zealand upheld the practice until 1990). Generally there were two ways to take the edge off rum. One was to age the liquid in wooden casks, which sailors rarely bothered with. The other way was to blend in spices. This is what most sailors did and it's what Sailor Jerry does.
Sailor Jerry was an exacting craftsman. His tattoos were precise, bold and flawless. Even the riggings on his clipper ship tattoos were nautically accurate. Sailor Jerry crafts their rum to a similar standard, going out of our way to find the best Caribbean rums to make Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum. The ones that make the cut are blended together to create the ideal base for their unmatched recipe of natural spices.
The higher proof spirit is historically accurate. In fact, the term “proof” comes from the method whereby sailors could assure their rum rations weren't being watered down. The ship's captain would ladle out a sample from the day's rum barrel in front of the men. He'd douse it with gunpowder, then give it a spark — if the rum was full strength, the powder ignited, giving sailors “proof” of the integrity of their rum.
Staying true to the old-school tradition of spicing high proof rum results in a uniquely bold, smooth and balanced liquid – perfect in your favorite cocktails.
VIKERA TEQUILA embodies the story of Melly Barajas, owner and master distiller of Vinos y Licores Aztecs, which is 100% owned and operated by women. Melly has had the chance to make a difference by providing many women the opportunity to maintain a steady career in the art of crafting the finest 100% blue agave Tequila in Mexico. Her ability to empower these women has earned her the name “Doña Melly” due to the impact she has made on many lives in her community. In the spirit of their hard work and dedication to the craft, Vikera Tequila is named after Melly and her Lady Vikings or "Vikeras". In order to help Melly continue to change lives, proceeds generated from each bottle of Vikera Tequila sold will be used to provide education and opportunities for the people of Valle de Guadalupe, Mexico.
EXTRAORDINARY TEQUILA MADE BY LADY VIKINGS
Vikera offers extraordinarily smooth and complex Tequila because of the unique oxygenated process, longer barrel aging and earthy notes that come from the highlands region of Tequila. Our four varietals provide a distinct experience depending on your occasion and your tastes and are meant to be savored the same way you would savor a beautiful glass of wine.
VIKERA BLANCO is a unique “white” tequila infused with Anejo. The Blanco is distilled three times and then “oxygenated” to create a smooth, crisp flavor with a slightly oak and vanilla finish.
WHAT SETS IT APART
Clear or "white" tequilas are not usually aged and can have a "tin-like" flavor. They are most commonly used to mix in a margarita or other cocktail. Blanco is different because it is infused a three-year old Añejo into it to add a slightly oak flavor.
SERVING SUGGESTION: We recommend enjoying Blanco tequila over ice or in a premium margarita.
Longer than other tequilas, VIKERA REPOSADO is aged in American white oak barrels for a minimum of six months. This extra aging gives Reposado a rich, gold color along with a slightly oak flavor. As with all Vikera tequilas, Reposado goes through an oxygenation process to give it an elegant and smooth finish.
WHAT SETS IT APART
Reposado means "rested" or "aged" and is used to describe tequila that has been put in an oak barrel unlike the Blanco tequila which goes into a used Jack Daniels barrel. Reposado is aged for eight to nine months versus the average of two months based on the assessment of the perfect flavor profile.
SERVING SUGGESTION: We recommend enjoying Reposado over ice or simply with a squeeze of lime.
VIKERA AÑEJO is aged for a minimum of three years, much longer than the industry standard. The result is the highest quality flavor with a dark hue and an extremely smooth finish.
WHAT SETS IT APART
Añejo is the next stage. In order to legally be classified as an Añejo Tequila, it must be aged for a minimum of one year. Añejo is aged for three years instead of one!
Aged for seven years, this tequila has an extraordinarily oaky flavor similar to a fine bourbon. Its overall flavor imparts a creamy texture and ultra-smooth taste.
WHAT SETS IT APART
In order to qualify as an Extra Añejo, the tequila has to be aged for three years. It is aged for seven years (double the time!) which gives its extraordinarily oaky flavor similar to a fine bourbon. Our Extra Añejo is the smoothest and most complex compared to other varietals. This makes it similar to a wine brand with a vintage attached to indicate premium quality.
