Pusser’s Gunpowder Proof Rum


Categories: ,


Since circa 1655, sailors of Great Britain’s Royal Navy were issued a daily “tot” of Pusser’s Rum. This tradition, one of the longest and unbroken in the history of the sea, lasted up to July 31st 1970 when it was decided by The Admiralty that this tradition could go on no longer. 100% natural, Pusser’s Gunpowder Proof Rum (previously known as Blue Label) is the true Navy Rum, and is still produced in wooden pot stills in accordance with Admiralty Regulations for Rum. The superb rum in this bottle, a multi Gold Medal Winner around the world, is the same rum blend that was issued by the Royal Navy all those years ago. They called it “Nelson’s Blood”. We call it Liquid History. Its full, rich flavour is unsurpassed due to each batch being aged in barrel for three years prior to bottling. Every year since 1980, a substantial royalty from the sale of each bottle of Pusser’s Rum is paid to the Royal Navy Sailor’s Fund – AKA – the ‘Tot Fund’ – which provides amenities for serving personnel. Pusser’s is the only Navy Rum that does this. 54.5% abv.
