It is alleged that during the 18th century Rear Admiral Sir Thomas Desmond Gimlette, of the Royal Navy, administered a concoction of gin and lime to help immunise the crew against illnesses such as scurvy and malaria.
Subsequently, some 300 years ago, legislation was passed requiring every British Naval ship to carry on board a quantity of Gin for medicinal purposes. It has been said that on the call “up spirits” sailors would report to the deck where they would have been offered up to 100ml of spirit (that’s four measures) every day.
The practice of giving alcohol rations to sailors on British Navy Ships continued until July 31st 1970 when at 6 bells in the afternoon the practice was abolished. It was an occasion that went down in the history books as Black Tot Day.
