Product Description

Fine dark rum with a rich bouquet and a full, complex flavour. Pussers Rum Blue Label is the original Admiralty Rum at issue strength.

Background: For more than 300 years, from before the days of Admiral Nelson, wooden ships and iron men, the sailors of Great Britain's Royal Navy were issued a daily ration of Pusser's Rum. This tradition, one of the longest and unbroken in the history of the sea, carried forward from the year 1655 to 31st July 1970 when it was stopped (known as "Black Tot Day").

The Navy's rum issue gave birth to an especially flavourful kind of rum called Navy Rum. Naturally flavoured, Pusser's is the original Navy Rum, still produced in accordance with Admiralty Regulations for Rum. This superb rum, a Gold Medal Winner, is the same rum that was issued in the Royal Navy.

A substantial royalty from the sale of each bottle of Pusser's Rum is paid to the Royal Navy Sailor's Fund - referred to as the "Tot Fund" - which provides amenities for serving personnel.
