From the earliest days of the Royal Navy, sailors were issued a daily ration or “tot” of rum by the ship’s “Purser,” a word the sailors later coined as “Pusser”.
This rum tradition rewarded heroism and eased defeat from 1655 until 1970 when this ceased by the Royal Navy
Pusser’s Rum is the only rum blended in exact accordance with the Royal Navy specifications last used when it discontinued its daily ration on July 31, 1970—ending a tradition that lasted over 300 years.
Pusser’s Rum is created in Guyana. The rums are blended to create the ideal balance of naturally occurring flavouring compounds known as “esters” and “congeners.” Unlike most rums, Pusser’s is all-natural and is never artificially flavoured or coloured. The molasses used in each of the contributing stills comes from sugar cane grown in the Demerara River Valley—once the home of 300 sugar cane estates each with its own distillery. This geographic region has been highly renowned for its production and worldwide distribution of sugar since the 1600s and is often referred to as the “Valley of Navy Rum.”
Pussers Rum has won a long list of awards throughout the years, with Forbes Magazine calling it "the single malt of rum".
