The collection

In honour of the last rum ration issued by the Royal Navy on what is now known as Black Tot Day, this legendary rum is the last of the remaining stocks from the original imperial gallon stone flagons.

About Black Tot

On the 31st of July in 1970, a 300 year old Royal Naval tradition ended at precisely 6 bells in the forenoon watch, when the last rum ration was issued aboard ships of the British Royal Navy; a day to be forever known as Black Tot Day.

Forty five years on, and as a mark of respect to this wonderful tradition, Speciality Drinks’ Ltd has decided to release the last remaining Royal Naval rum stocks from 1970. Effectively liquid history, this powerful rum sat silently in warehouses, only seeing the light of day for State occasions and Royal weddings.
