About Pusser's Rum
For more than three centuries, the daily ration of Pussers Rum brought cheer to British sailors the world over. The daily ration was controlled by the purser (or pusser, hence the name), and only ceased in 1970 when the Navy decided alcohol should be made available on a normal social basis. Pussers is a blend of aged pot-still Caribbean rums, with a unique and exceptionally smooth, rich flavour, and is the only rum blended in exact accordance with the Admiralty specification.
