Pussers Lord Nelson Ships Decanter Rum 1L contains Pusser’s rum – the official British Navy Rum. For many years, 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). A ritual that continued up until July 31st 1970; the end of a 325 year naval tradition was marked on British ships around the world with sailors wearing black armbands and conducting mock funerals, this was known as Black Tot day. Pusser’s Rum was resurrected in 1980 by ex-Navy Seal, Charles Tobias. After much convincing he was allowed to reproduce the rum to the exact specifications of the Admiralty blend established in 1810. Pusser’s is a blend of 5 molasses based rums from pot stills, these rums are sourced from Trinidad, Guyana and the British West Indies. The base rum is produced at Demerara Distillers from the world’s only wooden pot still in operation.
