Royal Canadian Navy Rum
Royal Canadian Navy Rum

This bottle held rum specially distilled for the Royal Canadian Navy.

Rum, and the ceremonies and customs associated with it, hold a prominent place in naval traditions. The Royal Canadian Navy derived its practice of issuing a rum ration from Britain's Royal Navy, which had long issued a daily "tot" of "grog" (rum diluted with water) to its sailors. In Canadian service, the issue of the "tot" ended in 1972.
