West Indies Rum Distillery (Rum)
Pusser's Rum takes its name from the officer on board the British Royal Navy ships whose job it was to issue sailors with their daily ration of rum. Originally called the "Purser", over time this name slowly changed to "Pusser". This daily ration of rum was a bright spot in the days of the sailors for over 300 years until the ritual was ended in 1970. Pusser's Rum is now the only rum that is still blended according to the specifications of the Royal Navy. Made using stills located in Guyana, this all-natural rum is made using sugarcane from the Demerara River Valley.
Pusser's British Navy Rum Black Label Gunpowder Proof is distilled in wood, which gives the rum its distinct flavour and richness. The name "Gunpowder Proof" refers to the fact that if this rum were spilt on gunpowder, it has a high enough alcohol level (54.5% alcohol per volume) to still allow the gunpowder to ignite. This traditional rum is a beautiful, dark copper colour in the bottle. Its range of flavours and aromas make this a rum that any rum lover should have in their collection.
To get the full range of flavours, this rum is best enjoyed at room temperature. Also excellent for mixing, this classic rum will allow you to taste exactly what the sailors longed for during so many years at sea. A Caribbean rum done according to tradition, Pusser's British Navy Rum Black Label Gunpowder Proof is smooth and mellow.
