Today’s Trademark- PUSSER’S RUM
Both in Great Britain and in the Royal Navy, the history of rum in the Royal Navy was largely one of social transition. Shipboard life was extremely difficult from 1650 to the 18th century. The highlight of the day was the regular issue of Pusser’s Rum. Battles were battled “eyeball-to-eyeball” back then.
The mental fortitude and bravery needed to load a cannonball into a muzzleloader were vastly different from those required to operate today‘s sophisticated weapon systems. As a result, the Admiralty Board decided in 1970 that the regular issue of rum had no place in a new navy, and Pusser’s Rum was discontinued in the Royal Navy on July 31st, 1970. Since then, the date has been referred to as Black Dot Day.
In 1979, American entrepreneur Charles Tobias reached a settlement with the Royal Navy to produce “military rum” withinside the equal fashion as conventional Royal Navy rum. Tobias secured the recipe, hitherto a secret, in go back for a royalty paid to the Admiralty. Pusser’s Rum Ltd become installed in Tortola, withinside the British Virgin Islands, to bottle and distribute the rum.
Pusser’s rums encompass rums sourced from Guyana.
Each of the rums withinside the middle variety is distinctive blends of rums according to the Admiralty’s specifications. These are all, rich, powerful, full-bodied, strong rums with significant palate weight and texture.
