Pusser’s Rum, known as the ‘single malt of rum’ is still produced in exact accordance with the Admiralty’s specifications for rum. The blend is the same as it was on British warships, using five West Indian rums (three from Guyana, two from Trinidad) aged for at least 3 years and contains mostly pot-still rum, all within Tortola in the British Virgin Islands. To add extra intrigue, the pot-still is made of wood, the definition of real navy rum. They are artfully blended to create the perfect balance of naturally occurring flavouring compounds known as ‘esters’ and ‘congeners’. Unlike most rums, Pusser’s Rum is all natural and is never artificially flavoured or coloured. The rum is hand-selected for its individual smoothness, flavour and mellow depth. Pusser’s Rum blend is rich and full-bodied, with an unsurpassed smoothness.
