Celebrate Vic's 115th Birthday with 50yr Appleton
This month Trader Vic’s in Emeryville, CA celebrates its founder Vic Bergeron on his 115th birthday (December 10), with a very rare and special $1210 Rum Old Fashioned cocktail, Vic’s favorite! While the cocktail is currently only available at the Emeryville, CA location, you can visit one of nearly 20 global destinations for the authentic Trader Vic’s experience!
The Vic Rum Old Fashioned is made using 50-year-old Appleton Estate Rum, a one-of-a-kind aged Jamaica rum.
Appleton Estate’s 50-year-old rum provides tasting notes of rich vanilla, layered with cinnamon, chocolate and maple.
The cocktail is served in a limited edition glass keepsake created to commemorate the occasion. Each limited-edition keepsake glass is numbered with a matching letter of authenticity.
The Trader Vic’s Commemorative Rum Old Fashioned recipe:
2 oz Appleton Estate 50 year

Trader Vic’s held an all-day “Wildfire Donation Drive,” providing a drop-off hub for vital supplies like Ready-to-eat food items, New Clothing, Flashlights, Batteries, Pet Food/Supplies and Phone Chargers. Our very own, Eve Bergeron, the granddaughter of Vic himself, helped coordinate the efforts along with her staff. Vic’s received donations from community members as well as from the Emeryville Sheraton Four Points Hotel and fellow tiki bar Forbidden Island in Alameda. The items were personally delivered to an evacuation center and the Santa Rosa Salvation Army.
