Pussers Rum Blue Label British Navy Rum presented in a 5cl Miniature. Perfect as a wedding favour, stocking filler, for making up hampers etc.
Pussers Blue Label Rum is inspired by the Admiralty’s blending recipe last used when the Royal Navy discontinued its daily ration on 31 July 1970 (Black Tot Day). It is a 3 year old blend of column and traditional pot still rums sourced from various countries around the Caribbean.
Pussers Rum is produced on Tortola in the British Virgin Islands and is named after the Royal Naval Slang for a purser, a ship’s supply officer. For more than 300 years sailors of the Royal Navy were issued a daily rum ration or tot, a highly welcome daily comfort when one was away from home for many months. There are a couple of very good reasons for reducing the alcoholic strength by volume down to 40%. Firstly, the lowered abv will allow Pussers to regain distribution on Naval bases where the maximum strength allowed is 40% abv – this will clearly open up what is a natural market for the rum. Secondly, due to the fact that duty is such a killer on spirits in the UK, the lowered abv will mean that the Pussers Rum Blue Label 40% is able to be sold at a much more affordable price. The main good news is that the 40% rum tastes a lot like its big brother, the Gunpowder Proof.
This is the key ingredient for the Pusser’s Painkiller Cocktail. Try one if you have never had one. Mine’s a number 4!
