Bottle Blurb : "For more than 300 years, from before the days of Admiral Nelson, wooden ships and iron men, the sailors of Great Britain's Royal Navy were issued a daily ration of Pusser's Rum. This tradition, one of the longest and unbroken in the history of the sea, carried forward from the year 1655 to July 31 st, 1970 when it was stopped. The Navy's rum issue gave birth to an especially flavorful kind of rum called Navy Rum. Naturally flavored, Pusser's is the original Navy Rum, still produced in accordance with Admiralty Regulations for Rum. The superb rum in this bottle, a Gold Medal Winner, is the same rum that was issued in the Royal Navy. They called it "Nelson's Blood". We call it Liquid History. Its full, rich flavor is unsurpassed. A substantial royalty from the sale of each bottle of Pusser's Rum is paid to the Royal Navy Sailor's Fund - referred to as the 'Tot Fund' - which provides amenities for serving personnel"
