London University Royal Navy Unit – Coxswains Rum
Spiced Rum (70cl) 37.5% ABV
Traditions: Rum Rations were a standard practice from the 1600's, but in 1740 it became a formal daily event where each enlisted man received a tot of rum. This was a reward for their hard service at sea, a morale boost and seen as a medicine by some. Although this practice was ended on Black Tot Day (July 31st, 1970) the Royal Navy maintains it strong rum connection and this is a drink to savour with your shipmates.
