A bottle of Bucktrout's 40 Year Old Fine Mature Jamaican Liberation Rum. The certificate of origin reads:

'The Directors of Bucktrout & Company Limited certify that the contents of the bottle of Liberation Rum Numbered 329 is genuine Jamaica Rum, distilled before 1945 and imported into Guernsey in an Oak Puncheon before 1947, bottled in April 1985 and sold on the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the Liberation of Guernsey from German Occupation.

The reason that no fixed dates can be given for the distillation or importation of this rum is that the records are so old as to be indistinct, however Bucktrout & Co Ltd have been paying Bond fees on the puncheon since 1947 and the law at that time forbad the importation of Rum of an age less that 3 years old. The spirit may well be much older but we shall never know. There was a bottling of similar Rum from a smaller cask in 1975 when 4oz bottles were produced, this was however only 70° proof.'
