Captain Morgan Jam Jar Serving Set (50ml Bottle & Glass Tumbler) - £7 at ASDA (Instore).

Gift set consists of a 50ml bottle (miniature) of Captain Morgan (Original), a beautifully-crafted, branded jam jar tumbler, a jigger and a plastic straw.

Great last minute, stocking filler.

Deal found in-store at the ASDA in Sinfin, Derby. Would assume it's a nationwide deal, as it was on the booze aisle.

A bottle of rum would be a far better stocking filler for not a lot more.
Good point. It's a nice glass mind you.
Preserving jars are associated with moonshine whiskey for historical reasons. Makes no sense to serve rum in them, like drinking wine from a shot glass.

I've yet to see the attraction of drinking out of a jam jar. What'll the next fashion be? Old bean tins?

Silly gimmicks are fine; they can be fun, but this one has lost all context. If you watch the TV show "Bar Rescue", Jon Taffer got in some Mason jar themed glasses for a moonshine themed bar in the South, which is about as far as this ought to be stretched. The reason Mason jars are associated with moonshine is that they were readily available in the rural areas where moonshine was made, and could be bought in quantity without raising suspicion. And of course they were designed to be reused. So Mason jars became the usual retail packaging for illicit moonshine. Liqueur smuggled in from outside the USA was produced legally in other countries and came already bottled, so rum has no association with preserving jars.
I couldn't care less what container it is served in if it is a decent drink. The contents are the important part. Having been given one of the Morgan gift sets as a gift I appreciate it and it is a very nice gift
