Pusser’s Bloody Rum Punch
Do you know why Pusser’s Rum is often referred
to as “Nelson’s Blood”?
Admiral Nelson lost his life while leading his men to victory in the Battle of Trafalgar. Legend has it that his body was transported back to England inside a cask of Pusser’s Rum in order to preserve his body for burial. But the journey back to England was long, and the sailors needed their rum fix, so they drilled a hole in the cask and drank the rum. When they finally arrived back to England, the cask was empty and the rum was gone; Nelson’s pickled body was all that remained. The sailors had been drinking “Nelson’s Blood,” and to this day, the term is often used to describe Pusser’s.
