If you're out on the high seas and trying to tie one on, this Behind The Bar® half gill rum measure makes sure you drink like a true pirate.


    Overview

    If you’re out on the high seas and trying to tie one on, this Behind The Bar® half gill rum measure makes sure you drink like a true pirate. Solid copper with an inner silver lining and a wishbone handle, it’s booty that is both beautiful and practical. If you’re a land lubber, the half gill measurement is equivalent to 2.5 standard ounces, so it can be used as a traditional jigger as well.

    Features
    • Made of copper
    • Interior is lined with sterling silver
    • In the Navy up until the early 20th century, both rum and water were mixed together in a large wooden barrel to make and prepare the daily ration of rum or grog
    • A Rum Bosun from each mess would come to collect the grog rations - each man was entitled to 1 and 1/2 Gills of grog
    • A pint measure holds 8 Half Gills
    • The Rum Bosun would receive a 1 pint measure and a 1/2 Gill measure which would be dipped into the 'grog tub' and then poured into his "rum fanny" to be brought back and served to his mess mates
    • Hand wash only

    The half Gill cup is a valued addition to my bar. The silver lining on the inside sets it off beautifully. An excellent value that I have shared with friends.

    Great product and conversation piece.
    This has been a real hit at my bar. Why use a shot glass when you can use something with character.

    I lost my 1/2 gill measuring cup and I did not want an authentic British naval measure at several hundred $. (The price was right and I needed a cup now.)

    My brother likes to drink. These seemed like a good idea for him.

    The perfect measure for a martini. Used in the sailing community as a standard jigger. It has a history in the British Royal Navy as a measure for grog, and it is attractive and a conversation starter.
