Pirate's Grog is a drink for everyone with an adventurous spirit who dreams of something new and exciting just over the horizon.
Pirate's Grog is a boutique rum company that originates from the island of Roatán, situated 40 miles off the coast of Honduras. The name Pirate's Grog is derived from days of old when pirates and buccaneers used the island as a resting point between voyages, as it provided a safe haven for trade in between plundering merchant vessels and sheltering from stormy weather.
The original recipe is aged for five years in ex-bourbon, white American oak barrels resulting, in an exceptionally smooth golden rum with notes of raisin, butterscotch and vanilla. Pirate’s Grog Five Year is bottled at 37.5% ABV because the first recorded use of ‘Grog’ was in reference to Sir Admiral Edward Vernon, who was famed for wearing a Grogram coat and as a result gained the nickname, ‘Old Grog’. He reduced the strength of the rum on board from navy strength (57%) to 37.5% ABV to help the rum last longer and keep his crew a little less three sheets to the wind, and this became known as ‘Grog’.
