Rumfest Golden Rum Barrel Awards 2010: Best European Rum


THE NAME ‘BLACK TOT’ STEMS FROM JULY 31ST 1970 WHEN A 300 YEAR-OLD ROYAL NAVAL TRADITION ENDED AT PRECISELY 6 BELLS IN THE FORENOON WATCH (11AM) WHEN THE LAST RUM RATION WAS ISSUED ABOARD SHIPS OF THE BRITISH ROYAL NAVY – A DAY TO BE FOREVER REMEMBERED AS BLACK TOT DAY.


Forty years on, Speciality Drinks have decided to release the last remaining Royal Naval rum stocks from 1970. This last consignment of the original rum has been bottled from the original imperial gallon stone flagons into which it had been filled and sealed under HM Customs & Excise supervision in December 1970. Black Tot - Last Consignment rum was officially released on the 31st July 2010 to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of Black Tot Day. This unique rum represents the last fragment of a Naval tradition that began in 1655 and ended forty years ago, and as such, can be considered an important landmark in naval history, and the history of rum itself.
