Pussers Rum Deptford Dockyard Reserve is a 2021 limited edition of Pusser’s Rum. It is bottled at a “Navy Strength” of 54.5% ABV. Pussers Rum Deptford Dockyard Reserve is a a blend of aged, high-ester distillates from Caribbean countries in Great Britain’s naval past.

Pussers Rum Deptford Dockyard Reserve is named after the important naval dockyard and base which is situated on the River Thames and operated between the 16th and 19th centuries. The base also comprised the HM Victualling Yard which was responsible supplying the Navy with food, tobacco, beer, medical supplies, clothing and, of course, rum. “Empire Rums” were sourced from British Navy rum suppliers from around the Empire including Demerara (Guyana), Trinidad, Barbados and Jamaica. The rums would be blended an aged for a further 2 years prior to being put into cask for distribution throughout the Navy. The yard had some 32 vats holding over 250,00 gallons of rum. 

Pussers is the original Navy Rum and is still produced in accordance with Admiralty Regulations for Rum. Prior to the invention of the hydrometer, the ship's "Purser" or "Pusser" as he was called, shutdown claims of watering down the sailors' daily rum tot by mixing it with a few grains of gunpowder to see if it would burn. If the mixture was ignited, the rum was "At Proof". If it didn't, the Pusser might find himself tossed to sea. Pusser's Rum remained at "Gunpowder strength" until the daily issue was terminated on July 31st 1970, known as "Black Tot Day."
