For well over 300 years, from before the days of Nelson, wooden ships, and iron men, the Royal Navy issued Pusser's rum daily to the crews of their ships -- and always a double issue before battle. First introduced into the navy in 1655 as a substitute for beer, by 1731 it was in general use. The name Pusser's is nothing more than a corruption of the word "purser". On board ship, the purser is responsible for ship's stores -- including the rum. Everything that came from the purser was called "Pusser's" -- and still is today. Hence the name for Pusser's Rum!
Often referred to as a Gold Rum, an Aged Rum is one that has been aged in barrels, often Ex-Bourbon or White Oak before bottling. As the Rum continues to age, it draws more and more color and flavor from the wood, adding both body and complexity to the finished product. Aged Rums can be sipped neat or added to cocktails. They fall somewhere in between White and Dark Rums in terms of their respective strength of flavor.
