Rum and the sea are inseparable, and no rum is more akin to the sea and the sailor than Pusser’s Rum–the Original Navy Rum. For more than 300 years, from the earliest days of wooden ships and iron men, sailors of Great Britain’s Royal Navy were issued a daily ration–or “tot”–of rum by the ship’s “Purser” (corrupted by the sailors to Pusser’s). Prior to 1740, the men’s daily tot of Pusser’s Rum was a pint a day, which they drank neat, that is without water! Before battle, they were issued a double ‘tot’, and always after victory for a job well done! From 1655 to the 19th century, Pusser’s Rum was one of the few daily comforts afforded those early seamen of Britain’s Navy as they fought around the globe to keep the Empire intact and its sea lanes open.
Clear, dark amber in colour. The bouquet is lively, aromatic spiced rum first provides distinct notes of fresh culinary ginger and cinnamon, followed by layers of orange zest and baking spices such as nutmeg and allspice. The finish is surprisingly smooth with ginger heat lingering.
