A true gunpowder tested*, 57% alcohol, 115 Proof Navy Strength Craft Rum suitable for drinking, sipping or diluting to make your very own “Grog!” This is the stuff that men of yore went down to the sea in ships with!
“They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters, they see the works of the Lord, and his wonders in the deep.” 1849 by Mrs. L.H. Sigourney
* Aboard the ancient Naval ships, to prove the quality of the Rum before it was diluted (turned into Grog) and dispensed to the crew, a traditional Proofing of the Rum ceremony took place on the deck. A small amount of gunpowder would be soaked in rum and lit. If the rum was at least 54.5% alcohol it would light and then ignite the gunpowder causing it to flare. Every batch from our stills is tested using the time honored Proofing of the Rum tradition before it earns its Spirits of Patriots label!
