In fact, the term “proof” comes from the method of reassuring sailors that their rum has not been watered down. A ship's captain would take a ladle of rum, add gunpowder and ignite it to provide his crew with a "proof" of the integrity of their rum. Sailor Jerry Rum was created in honor of Norman “Sailor Jerry” Collins, the undisputed father of the old school tattoo and a true independent spirit.
