Pusser's Tot Fund and the Royal Navy & Royal Marines Charity

Written by Pete on . Posted in Rum Chat

Pusser's Tot Fund Donation

Rum & Good Deeds!  

Every bottle of Pusser's Rum carries the statement that by purchasing the bottle, you've effectively made a contribution to the Royal Navy Tot Fund. Perhaps you may not have noticed, or don’t care. Maybe you thought it was a piece of made up bullsh*t marketing! But when I recently tagged along with the Pusser's team as they travelled to Royal Navy HQ, I saw just how much Pusser’s and the Royal Navy & Royal Marines Charity (RNRMC) value this long established agreement.

Caña Brava 3 Year Old Rum

Written by Pete on . Posted in Rum Chat

Caña Brava 3 Year Old Rum

Rum Made In Panama  

Caña Brava 3 Year Old Rum has been part of the 86 Companies quartet of spirits since 2012, initially available in the US only, I was quite pleased to see them here in the UK at the Imbibe Live show a few months back. Having sipped a little on the day and followed up by sipping a bit more since, I feel that Caña Brava offers something different to make it stand out in a tightly packed white rum sector.
