A gift of a lifetime for the ultimate rum connoisseur – Black Tot Last Consignment British Royal Naval Rum

Expensive bespoke rum
One of the most expensive and exclusive rums in the world, Black Tot is the last reserves of the British Royal Navy rum which used to be rationed to sailors. It was first introduced in Jamaica in 1655, and the daily tot of rum was a major part of British naval life. The tradition was ended on 30 July 1970 on a day known as Black Tot Day.
In 2010, to mark the day’s 40th anniversary, the last remaining stocks were re-bottled – and the exclusive Black Tot: Last Consignment was made available to rum connoisseurs the world over. With notes of dark chocolate, black fruit, walnuts and muscovado sugar this is a complex spirit loved by those who know their rum.
Dad will certainly impress his friends when he pulls out a bottle of Black Tot from his drinks cabinet.  Priced at £650 and available from Black Tot.

The perfect gift for the sailing tradition enthusiast – hand-etched and inked Maritime Scrimshaw Ostrich Egg


An ostrich egg with maritime scrimshaw
This Maritime Scrimshaw Ostrich Egg ,£1,285 is a true object of art for the tradition loving seafarer dad.

In the 19th century during the Golden Age of Sail, sailors aboard American whaleships captured the adventure of life at sea through the art of scrimshaw – etching on ivory, shell, or bone. Now, New York artist, Leviathan Bell, has reimagined scrimshaw for the modern age, using farmed ostrich eggs.

Each egg is etched and inked using the same painstaking techniques the sailors of the past honed at sea. A beautiful timeless gift that will make any enthusiast of all things traditional very happy this Father’s Day.
