Ahoy, Mateys! Are you ready for yet another LIVE East Coast / West Coast tasting? Yes? GREAT! This time around, The West Coast Office, Limpd, and G-LO will be discussing ad nauseum, a brand new Rum from the fine folks at Elixir Distillers.
Here’s a bit about what we’ll be tasting…
On the 31st of July 1970, a 300-year-old Royal Naval tradition ended at precisely 6 bells in the forenoon watch, when the last rum ration was issued aboard ships of the British Royal Navy; a day to be forever remembered as Black Tot Day.
Forty years on, in 2010, as a mark of respect to this wonderful tradition, Elixir Distillers launched Black Tot Last Consignment a blend of rum made up of the very last remaining stocks of Royal Navy rum that had been discovered in naval warehouses in Dartmouth and Deptford. This historic rum had sat dormant for over 30 years, only seeing the light of day on state occasions and Royal weddings.
In 2019 Elixir Distillers launched a new, accessible rum that pays homage to the history of naval rum whilst turning the style on its head. Black Tot rum is a blend of some of the finest spirits from Barbados, Guyana and Jamaica, creating a modern, versatile and multi-layered rum that appeals to rum and whisky lovers across all seas.
Be sure to tune in on Saturday, May 30, 2020 at 10PM EDT / 7PM PDT! Eye patches and pirate clothing are optional but highly encouraged.
