Default Sailor Jerrys - Old Style

I need some help - I have an unopened 1.5L bottle of the old style Sailor Jerrys in my cupboard and I'm not sure what to do with it.

Do I sell it, hold on to it or just drink it?

Welcome to the forums. It is illegal, in most cases, to sell alcohol online unless you have a license to do so.

I would recommend inviting some of your friends to enjoy your bottle of rum with you. Who knows, one of them might have something stashed in their closet.

Drink it if you can stomach it. There is a palette of these bottles up here in the North East. It has been available in various retailers around the North East for £50 a bottle - They can't shift it.

Most people who drank or had any interest in Sailor Jerry back in the day of this disgusting bottling have long since moved onto the next fad drink.

The newer Sailor Jerry is better and for those who want the taste of "Old" UK Sailor Jerry can get Old J.

You'll have to hold onto it a long time before it becomes valuable. If it ever does
