Summer Rum: Ron Jeremy Smashes the Liquor Biz

Ron de Jeremy Rum has beat you to the chase. Oh, you want to make jokes about slurping something named after a porn star? Well, the bottle already announces "long smooth taste." They've already taken it there, and the joke is made all the more successful by the rather mournful expression Jeremy wears on the bottle's artwork. Of course, none of this would be worth mentioning if the rum wasn't delicious, which it is.

If the bit of playfulness in the drink's description wasn't enough for you, please direct your attention to the rum's name: Ron de Jeremy. Ron is Spanish for rum—the language games get deeper. Still, there's nothing funny about the beverage itself. A 7-year-old Panamanian rum, Ron de Jeremy works great in a mojito, though it's well-balanced enough that drinking it neat isn't an uncomfortable prospect. On the contrary, it's quite nice neat, with oak and vanilla flavor notes. If you're not up for Ron Naked (the website's phrase for the drink, not mine), there are a number of other drinks the Hedgehog encourages. Check them out here.

If you want to buy something that makes for a good drink and a great conversation piece, you'd be hard-pressed to do better than Ron de Jeremy.
