Pusser's Gunpowder Proof is a traditional Royal Navy style rum produced at original Admiralty strength (54.5% ABV) and in accordance with the Admiralty's blending recipe last used when the Royal Navy discontinued its daily ration on 31 July 1970.
Gunpowder Proof: Prior to the invention of the hydrometer, the Royal Navy ship's PusserÃ¢Â€Â shutdown claims of watering down sailors' daily tots by dousing a bit of gunpowder in the rum and attempting to light. If the mixture ignited, the rum was at proof.Ã¢Â€Â If it didn't, the Pusser might find himself tossed to sea. Amongst seamen, the consensus is that Pusser's is about as close to the authentic British Royal Navy edition as you can get. A true sailor's delight.
