PUSSER’S Rum is the original Navy Rum (42%ALC/VOL)

20 Sep
PUSSER’S is the original Navy Rum as served on board warships of Great Britain’s Royal Navy for more than 350 years from about 1655 to 1970.  It was a part of the life and times of Nelson and the old navy so aptly described in the novels of Patrick O’Brian?  PUSSER’S 350 years of Liquid History has become the standard by which other dark rums are measured.  PUSSER’S was never sold or offered to the public until 1979.  Prior to this, if a rum connoisseur managed to obtain a tot or two, it was valued for a very special occasion.

PUSSER’S full, rich flavor is all natural, no flavoring agents are added.  It is the only rum whose flavor is sufficiently distinctive to be savored through the ingredients of just about any cocktail.

Grog’, the most traditional of all sea drinks, originated from PUSSER’S RUM.  There was an admiral by the name of Vernon who was much loved by his men who had named him affectionately ‘Old Grog’ on account of a grogram boat cloak he oftimes wore when on the quarterdeck.  In his days, the men received their PUSSER’S RUM allowance twice daily, one-half pint at noon and the other in the evening.  This generous allotment was the cause of much drunkenness and disobedience for which the punishment was often brutal.  In order to stop what he called “the swinish vice of drunkenness”, he ordered that the mens’ rum should be mixed in a scuttled butt (a cask with a lid on it) in the ratio of two parts water to one of rum, and that those that behaved be issued extra lime juice and sugar that the watered rum be made more palatable to them.  The men were incensed that he had diluted their neat rum, and so named it contemptuously grog from the name they’d already given him.  Thus true grog is PUSSER’S RUM and water with lime juice and brown sugar.
