A blend of 4 Rums that recreates authentic Navy Rums flavors.
Navy Spirits Co. are all about modern versions of historical spirits from Navy traditions. Gunroom is a collection of Spirits, including Gin and Rum that recreate the authentic taste of the Royal British Navy Spirits. But why gunroom? Well, gunroom was a compartment where lower-ranked officers would gather to eat, drink, and sleep on their long voyages. It’s also where they most probably enjoyed a sip of their favorite Navy Spirit.
Navy Rum must be bottled at 54.5% ABV or higher and the blend must include Rums of different origins, primarily of British style rums. The Royal Navy sailors would receive a daily Rum ration, known as a "tot". This tradition lasted for several centuries from the 17th century until July 31, 1970.
Gunroom 4 Ports Rum is crafted from Rums of different ages. Some are unaged but mostly the Rums in the blend are "heavy" Rums, distilled with 19th-century stills that were actually used by the Royal Navy at the time. The key ingredient is Demerara rum from Guyana while others come from Barbados, Trinidad, Jamaica. Hence, the four ports. The Rums are then married on vats. Powerful and flavorful, expect an abundance of flavors of toffee, spices, molasses, and dried pineapple flakes.
