Pussers Rum Company

Pusser’s Rum is a privately owned, independent rum company that reproduce the original  Royal Navy rum in accordance to its specifications. The word “Pusser” is nothing more than a corruption of the word “Purser“—the officer responsible for the daily issue of rum on board navy ships. The Admiralty blend became known as “Pusser’s Rum.”The Great British Admiralty first served rum daily to its Royal Navy sailors over 300 years ago until the ration was abolished in 1970. In 1979 Charles Tobias(sailor and businessman) resurrected Pusser’s Rum using the original blending recipe from the Admiralty and  bought the recipe rights, formed Pusser’s Rum Ltd. in the British Virgin Islands, and for the first time made the rum  available for public consumption.

Pusser’s Rum is the product of stills located 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. It is often referred to as the “Valley of Navy Rum.”

The Admiralty blend has been heavily influenced by rum distilled in a double wooden pot still of the Port Mourant, which first went into production in 1732. Although relocated and refurbished over the years, the double wooden pot stills continue to be the bedrock of Navy rum and a vital part of the distillation process that produces superbly enhanced aroma and flavour. The “Greenheart” staves of these old wooden stills have absorbed decades of unique, organic flavouring compounds, that provide a deep flavour far beyond that of mass-produced rums.

Following distillation, Pusser’s Rum is aged for a minimum of three years in charred oak bourbon barrels—imparting additional smoothness and flavour. The tropical climate in Guyana helps spirits reach their maturity faster than spirits aged in higher latitudes. Unlike spirits distilled from grain, rum doesn’t need to be as old to achieve a unique flavor profile.

Tasting Notes:

Nose: Classic Demerara sugar, molasses, dried fruits, island spices and caramel.

Palate: Full, round and perfect for cocktails.

Finish: Long finish with a mild spicy burn.

    A very familiar rum. A little darker than my preference.
