Ting

By Velier

Our collaboration with Ting arose as a consequence of the one with Wray & Nephew, that is, with Appleton, a brand with which I would never have believed I would collaborate, having previously been distributed first by Soffiantino and then by Wax & Vitale, to whom I would never have taken a product away by ethics. Then, through various vicissitudes, Appleton was bought by Campari, and so I had lost all hope. Instead, as fate would have it, Campari approached Velier, as a rum specialist and a major player in the distribution of spirits in Italy. And from there began the collaboration that today allows us to distribute Wray & Nephew, which is a bit like the father of all Jamaican blending rums.

Overview

History

Ting is the lemonade that originated in Jamaica in the 1970s and is still produced today following the same recipe, with the addition of grapefruit pulp. It is mainly drunk with J.Wray & Nephew Overproof, the most popular rum in Jamaica, so much so that it accounts for 90% of total consumption. The combination of the two creates the perfect long drink, which has become Jamaica's national drink and is loved by locals and tourists alike.This drink is known as '"Wray & Ting" - or even "Sting Wray", named after Joy Spence, Appleton's Master Blender and the one who creates the blend of J. Wray & Nephew Overproof - and it is the perfect serve to enjoy this White Rum that matches the citrusy taste of grapefruit.

Production method

The Ting is a typical local grapefruit lemonade that combines several Caribbean grapefruit varieties. The combination with J.Wray & Nephew Overproof rum creates a perfect long drink, which has become Jamaica's national drink and is loved by locals and tourists alike. The long drink consists of: 4cl Wray & Nephew White Rum; 12cl Ting; 1 Grapefruit Slice. The rum is poured into a highball glass with plenty of ice, then mixed and topped with the Ting and finally garnished with the grapefruit slice.
