On the 31st of July 1970, a 300-year-old Royal Naval tradition ended, when the last rum ration was issued aboard ships of the British Royal Navy; a day to be forever remembered as Black Tot Day.
In 2010, Black Tot Last Consignment was launched - a blend of rum made up of the very last remaining stocks of Royal Navy rum that had been discovered in naval warehouses. This historic rum had sat dormant for over 30 years.
Following this, was Black Tot Rare Old 40 Years Demerara Rum. This is one of the oldest examples of Demerara Rum in the world today, distilled in 1975.
2019 saw the launch of Black Tot Finest Caribbean, whose recipe features rums from Barbados, Guyana and Jamaica. It is a delicious sipping rum, as well as bringing extra depth to cocktail creations.
Next, to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Black Tot Day in 2020, Black Tot created the Black Tot 50th Anniversary Limited Edition Rum. This is a marriage of rums from Jamaica, Barbados, Guyana and Trinidad.
The Black Tot range now also includes a special component tasting set, launched in 2020.
