Pussers Gunpowder Proof Spiced Rum 70cl
The superb rum in this bottle has been chill filtered and aged for a minimum of 3 years in once used charred oak bourbon barrels and further enhanced with a unique blend of Caribbean spices.
Prior to the interdiction of the Sikes hydrometer, in 1816, the ship's Purser, or "Pusser", tested the strength of the daily issue by mixing neat rum, with a little water to which was added to a few gunpowder grains. If, when the mixture was heated through a burning glass, the gunpowder ignited, the rum was served at "Proof". When the method was tested by hydrometer, it was found to be 109 proof (54.5%ABV).
