Royal Navy Imperial Rum Flagon 1 Gallon

A fantastic piece of distilling and naval history.

Part of a long and storied British naval tradition dating back to 1655, whereby sailors were afforded a daily ration (known as a tot) of rum.

On the 31st of July 1970 - henceforth known as Black Tot Day - the tradition was consigned to the history books and the ration suspended.

Thankfully, small amounts of this fabled spirit have survived the decades since such as this one gallon stone flagon, giving you the chance to own a small part of this tradition that has shaped the way many rums are made and enjoyed to this day.

Shipping will be charged at 4 bottles on this lot.
