Up until the 1970s, a measure of rum was afforded to all Royal Navy men as part of their daily rations. A ‘tot’ was given to all, with a double measure presented in times of either heroism or defeat. The ship’s ‘Purser’ had the job of dolling out these rations, a name that slowly morphed into ‘Pusser’, over the years.
The tradition of rum rations is now no more, though the name still lives on in this Naval strength bottle. Aged for 15 years, this blended rum is inspired by the Admiralty’s recipe which was still used up until rum rations ceased. Golden in colour, this rum is full-bodied with sweet hints of molasses, dried fruit and tropical spice. A lingering finish and a mild warmth make for a spirit perfect for sipping or mixing into cocktails. Best enjoyed both out at sea and on dry land.
