The rum will launch on 31 July, the 40th anniversary of Black Tot Day, when the British Navy called time on the tradition of serving a portion of rum to naval officers and sailors each day.

The release includes a custom made wooden box, an 80-page book on the history of naval rum written by spirits author Dave Broom, a copper cup to measure an official half gill ration and a certificate of authenticity.
