Deptford Dockyard was the Royal Navy Victualling Board's main spirit depot in 1742. The Yard's warehouse housed 30 storage vats which accommodated and aged over 250 thousand gallons of rum. Deptford supplied the Fleet with a flavourful blend of "Empire" rums from British Navy suppliers located in Demerara (Guyana), Trinidad, Barbados and Jamaica. While little is known about early Admiralty specifications, "the blend" was done "in such a proportion as experience had shown was preferred by the men".
To commemorate the 52nd anniversary of Black Tot Day, Pusser's introduces its limited edition Deptford Dockyard Reserve at Navy proof, featuring a blend of aged, high-ester distillates from Caribbean countries in Great Britain's naval past.
Notes of new leather, toffee, raisin, dates and dark chocolate. The finish has Christmas cake spices and dried fruit with a suggestion of sea salt that leads to a satisfying and dry sherry finish.
