We celebrate the anniversary of Black Tot Day rather than mourn the loss of the sailors’ tot.

Black Tot Day in 1970 ended a relationship between the British Armed Forces and their favourite drink. A relationship that had resulted in the creation of one of the world’s most magnificent blended rums, bringing together spirit from different countries, cultures and traditions to create a rum that was enjoyed by the navy every day. The sailors of the of the time mourned the loss of their rum.

But this loss led to society’s gain, in the discovery of not only the Last Consignment of Navy rum, lying in stone flagons, but also the understanding that it gave us of the Royal Navy’s lost art of blending – it was the inspiration to create Black Tot Finest Caribbean, a rum to be enjoyed by all. For this reason, we celebrate the anniversary of Black Tot Day rather than mourn the loss of the sailors’ tot, and it is why, for this year’s very special anniversary, we have created a navy-strength rum in tribute.

May we never let the Tot die again. Long Live the Tot!
