Black Tot Rum

RRP £39.95

This dark, Navy-style blend is a homage to the daily ‘tot’ that was issued to the Royal Navy right up until 31st July 1970. Older and more ‘luxe’ versions of Black Tot Rum exist (including a bottling from the last remaining Naval stocks) but this lower-strength version has the best combination of grace and power for me. Blackest treacle, fiery ginger cake and a hint of sea salt – really good on the rocks.
