Pussers Rum Unveils Pickle Night Cocktail

Written by Pete on . Posted in Rum Chat

A Grog for Nelson

In A Pickle…  

If you read your history books, you’d be familiar with a popular Navy date called Pickle Night (more details below if you’re not). Marked by a number of navy-themed celebrations up and down the UK, this date is symbolic because on 4th November 1805, it was HMS Pickle that sailed back to Britain to take home the news of Lord Nelson’s death at the Battle of Trafalgar. In keeping with tradition, mixologist and self-confessed history buff, Nate Brown, founder of Merchant House gin and rum bar in The City, has created an exclusive new cocktail ‘A Grog for Nelson’, for this year’s celebrations.

Wingman’s Blend: The Perfect Gift!  

Our buddy Richard (a.k.a. Wingman) has been pretty good to us of late, helping us out with all kinds of things and so we wanted to get him a little 'something' by way of thanks. Having had a little experience of the Davey Jones Revenge blend loaned to us by RumBlender.nl for our recent Carnival Expo stand – we thought a personalised rum was going to tick all the boxes!
