The name ‘Black Tot’ stems from July 31st 1970 when a 300-year-old Royal Naval tradition ended at precisely 6 bells in the forenoon watch (11am) when the last rum ration was issued aboard ships of the British Royal Navy – a day to be forever remembered as Black Tot Day.
Black Tot Last Consignment Rum is a unique rum that represents the culmination of over 300 years of Royal Naval rum tradition. For the first time in nearly 40 years the last remaining stock of the original Royal Naval Rum Tot has been bottled as Black Tot Last Consignment Rum.
There are many superb aged whiskies and innumerable fine vintage cognacs, yet there are very few comparable premium rums. Black Tot Last Consignment Rum is one such rum. With its unique history & provenance, limited availability and ever growing recognition among connoisseurs as being one of the finest tasting rums ever produced it should be viewed as rare and unique. It is a truly remarkable and complex rum – a marrying of original British Colonial pot still rums. Once its gone, it can not be repeated. Bottled at 54.3% alc/vol.
