Black Tot Last Consignment - Royal Naval Rum

Forty years after Black Tot Day in 1970, the day when the British Royal Navy's 300-year-old practice of daily rum rations stopped, the Black Tot Last Consignment gives us a piece of liquid history. It was bottled from antique stone flagons containing the last stocks of Royal Navy Rum which rested untouched for over four decades. This blend of rums had continually evolved for over 100 years, with much of it coming from distilleries long since lost.

After all these years, this piece of history is still 54.3% (95° proof), almost exactly the original Navy issuing strength. It comes with a Tot cup, similar to those used in the days of daily rum rations and a wooden display case.
