Celebrating Black Tot Day with Rob’s Rum Guide

On the occasion of the last day in July, we celebrate British Royal Navy traditions with a remembrance of Black Tot Day — July 31, 1970 — the infamous day that British sailors were served their last daily ration of rum aboard the ships. Every year on the anniversary of that fateful day, people honor over 300 years of tradition all around the world with a tot. In honor of Black Tot Day, enjoy this video from Rob’s Rum Guide giving a brief history of Pusser’s Rum and Black Tot Day!
