Sailors at sea were once afforded a ration of rum every day. It was their pay. Usually the Grog was more water than rum, but when they had performed valiantly or had seen heavy weather or a bruising fight, the captain would dole out a little more fortitude in the ration. When the ration was pure rum, the sailors would say the ration was “Due North”. Due North Rum’s delicate profile and it’s unique aging process gives this rum appeal to whiskey drinkers and rum drinkers alike.
