Throughout history, sailors of Her Majesty’s Navy were a shining example of true courage and masculinity.
In 1740 Vice Admiral Edward Vernon ordered his crew to be given a daily ration of hot tea mixed with whiskey, spices and lemon juice to protect the men’s health and boost morale. Vernon wore a coat of grogram cloth and was nicknamed Old Grog. Thus the drink was named Grog. The daily grog tradition lasted in the Royal Navy for more than two centuries.
Catch the seafaring spirit of adventure with Richard Royal Grog Tea, a strong black tea blended with spicy cinnamon, cayenne pepper and the inspiring aroma of whiskey. Best served in an original Richard glass with a wedge of lemon - and a drop of whiskey if desired.
