Black Tot 50th Anniversary
Black Tot is a rum brand launched in 2010 by Speciality Drinks to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the event known as "Black Tot Day," when on the 31st July 1970 British sailors received their final daily rum ration.
This limited edition was bottled in 2020 to mark the 50th anniversary.
Speciality Drinks was established in 1999 as the independent bottling arm of The Whisky Exchange, which launched its online retail site the same year. Their first bottlings were under the Single Malts of Scotland label in 2005, followed by the Elements of Islay range and Port Askaig single malt brand in 2006 and 2009, respectively. The company was renamed Elixir Distillers in 2017.
