Pusser's Rum Blue Label

The Story

PUSSER’S is the original Navy Rum as served on board warships of Great Britain’s Royal Navy for more than 350 years from about 1655 to 1970. It was a part of the life and times of Nelson and the old navy so aptly described in the novels of Patrick O’Brian? PUSSER’S 350 years of Liquid History has become the standard by which other dark rums are measured. PUSSER’S was never sold or offered to the public until 1979. Prior to this, if a rum connoisseur managed to obtain a tot or two, it was valued for a very special occasion.

The Blend

PUSSER’S full, rich flavor is all natural, no flavoring agents are added. It is the only rum whose flavor is sufficiently distinctive to be savored through the ingredients of just about any cocktail.

Sensory Notes

The color is a rich mahogany, though clear. The aroma is a burst of classic Demerara with a wonderful mix of brown sugar and molasses. Notes of leather, tobacco, dried sultanas, nutmeg, clove, and cassia. The aroma finishes with soft oak, caramel, and rich English toffee.

Pairings

Orange juice, pineapple juice, ginger, cola, cigars, barbecued meats, smoked meats, and bread-based desserts.
