The new range celebrates the famous naval victory of Admiral George Rodney against the French at the Battle of the Saints in 1782 thus ensuring British domination of the Caribbean. Rodney’s fleet had made their base in the island of Saint Lucia in the Caribbean and awaited Admiral de Grasse’s French fleet to leave Martinique before their pursuit and ultimate victory. The names of the rums in the new range are taken from those ships who distinguished themselves in the battle. HMS Princessa, HMS Royal Oak and Rodney’s flagship HMS Formidable excelled in the fighting and “broke the Line” of the French fleet.
