Rum and the sea are inseparable, and no rum is more akin to the sea and the seaman than is British Navy Pusserís Rum. For more than 300 years, sailors of Great Britainís Royal Navy were issued a daily ration of rum by the Purser (corrupted to "Pusser" by the Jack Tars). From 1655 to 1970 "Pusserís Rum" was one of the few daily comforts afforded those early seamen of Britain's Navy as they fought across the globe to keep the Empire intact and its sea lanes open.
British Navy Pusserís Rum is the same superb blend of five West Indian rums as served on board Their Majestiesí ships for three centuries. Today, it is still blended in accordance with the Admiraltyís exacting specifications of 1810.
Pusserís Rum was never sold or offered to the public, and if a rum connoisseur managed to acquire a tot or two, he saved it for a very special occasion. It is said by connoisseurs to be more like a fine brandy than a rum, with a full, rich flavor and a smoothness which are unsurpassed. It is a sipping rum, which, of course, may also be mixed. Its full mellow flavor comes through anything you might mix it with. Either neat or mixed, you will notice and enjoy the full, rich flavor of Pusserís rum.
