In 1825, John Wray established The Shakespeare Tavern in Kingston, Jamaica. The company developed steadily and in 1860 John’s nephew, Charles James Ward, joined the business. Thus, J Wray and Nephew came into being. John Wray retired in 1862, with Ward left at the helm. The brand started out as a tavern and spirits dealer and, over time, it developed into a thriving business. At the London International Exhibition in 1862, J Wray and Nephew’s rum were awarded three gold medals. Awards and acclaim were received at various exhibitions throughout the world over the course of the 19th century. The brand was acquired by Lindo Brothers & Co in 1916. Shortly after, they purchased the Appleton Estate rum distillery. The company also employ the only female Master Blender in the industry, Joy Spencer. Today, the brand produce the world’s best-selling high strength white rum. Furthermore, J Wray and Nephew have become a massive part of Jamaica’s culture.
Bittersweet mocha and woody spice, with touches of oak char and caramel throughout alongside a burst of vibrant ripe tropical fruit, namely kiwi.

Dark & Stormy Cocktail Recipe
Fans of the Moscow Mule, this one’s for you. The Dark ’n Stormy is a delicious, easy-to-make cocktail that features a refreshing trio of dark rum, ginger beer and lime, and it also goes down a lot easier than the name might imply. This popular cocktail is now found all over the world, but can be traced back to the island of Bermuda. Fun fact, it’s still Bermuda's national drink today! It was sailors who first enjoyed mixing rum with the stomach settling ginger ale, and technically a real Dark & Stormy can only be made with Bermuda’s own Gosling’s Black Seal Rum, with notes of caramel, vanilla and spice. However, if you’re simply looking to whip the best Dark & Stormy cocktail recipe up at home, feel free to use any dark rum (we’re not telling anyone!). Note that ginger ale is not a substitute for ginger beer. Ginger ale is just carbonated water that’s flavoured with ginger, like a soda. Ginger beer, on the other hand, is brewed and fermented and this will benefit your Dark & Stormy. We also call for a modest measure of lime juice, but feel free to add more if it suits your taste. Get mixing and set sail!
