Delivery Details

Pusser's Rum Gunpowder Proof 70cl is a traditional Royal Navy style rum produced at original Admiralty strength and in accordance with the Admiralty’s blending recipe last used when the Royal Navy discontinued its daily ration on 31 July 1970.

Prior to the invention of the hydrometer, the ship’s purser shutdown claims of watering down sailors’ daily tot by mixing a few grains of gunpowder to the rum to see if it would burn. If the mixture ignited, the rum was ‘at proof.’ If it didn’t, the purser might find himself tossed to sea.

Clear, dark coppery amber with burnished copper highlights. Pungent molasses, treacle, toffee, honey and vanilla with oak, cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger. Full-bodied with a more enhanced flavour profile than the lower proof Blue Label. Long finish, and despite its strength, smooth and mellow
