The Best Rum for Tiki Cocktails

Pusser's Rum is an award-winning dark rum brand that dates all the way back to the 1600s. The Royal Navy began the tradition of the daily tot in 1655 until 1970 where the seafaring men received a daily ration of Pusser's Rum. After Black Tot Day, Charles Tobias founded our company and the rest is history. Pusser's Rum is now widely distributed across the world and has become a popular favorite amongst tiki bars, restaurants, and everything in between.
