A classic British Navy style rum, Pusser's Gunpowder Proof rum has rich notes of treacle, toffee, honey and vanilla throughout the palate, alongside oak, cinnamon and ginger. Taking its name from the naval tradition of providing sailors a daily ration of rum, distributed by the Purser – or Pusser. The Pusser would dispel any complaints of watering down the rum by wetting a pinch of gunpowder with the rum and attempting to light it. If the mixture ignited it was "proof" that the rum was strong enough.

    Hank Denver,

    This is a splendid, unique rum and a nice change from others. Does it actually have gunpowder in it?

    Chris Russell D/055096V,

    This is the closest to the real Pussers Rum that I have had since that dreadful day when the Royal Navy rum tot was abolished. Long may it live!

    What can I say - it's a gun powder strength rum with a bit of a kick and the after burn that you'd expect of a Navy rum.
