Bombarda's Revenge Jamaican Dark Spiced Rum is a legendary rum brand dedicated to Edward Teach AKA - Blackbeard and his vessel - Queen Anne's Revenge. Inspired by his legend and fight for freedoms against tyranny of the day & thirst for adventure, Revenge captures the true spirit of the Golden Age of Piracy.
Blackbeard, whose real name was Edward Teach, was born around 1680 in Bristol, England. He rose to infamy as one of the most feared and ruthless pirates of his time. Blackbeard's life as a pirate began in the early 18th century when he joined the crew of Benjamin Hornigold, another renowned pirate.
Blackbeard quickly gained a reputation for his imposing appearance and fearsome
tactics. He adorned his long, black beard with slow-burning fuses, creating a terrifying image that struck fear into the hearts of his enemies. This ominous sight, combined with his ruthless demeanor, made Blackbeard a legend among pirates.
In 1717, Blackbeard seized control of a captured French ship, renaming it Queen Anne's Revenge. This mighty vessel became his flagship and a
symbol of his power.
With his fleet, which included ships like the Adventure and the Flying Dutchman, Blackbeard established himself as a prominent figure within the Flying Gang, a loose association of pirates
who operated out of Nassau, Bahamas.
Pirates, despite their reputation for lawlessness, lived by a code known as the Pirate Code or Articles of Agreement. This code served as a set of rules and guidelines that governed their behavior and interactions within the pirate community.
The Pirate Code encompassed various aspects of pirate life, including division of loot, discipline, and democracy. It ensured fairness and order among the crew members, promoting a sense of unity and cooperation.
Blackbeard understood the importance of maintaining morale and loyalty among his crew, and an equitable distribution of plunder played a significant role in achieving this. Like many pirates, Blackbeard would have ensured that each member of his crew received a fair share of the captured treasure based on their rank and contribution.
By adhering to this principle, Blackbeard fostered a sense of unity and camaraderie among his crew, incentivizing them to continue their daring exploits and remain loyal to the pirate cause. This fair division of loot was a crucial aspect of pirate life and one that Blackbeard, as an influential pirate captain, would have upheld to maintain the loyalty and respect of his crew.
Despite his violent end, Blackbeard's legacy as a fearsome pirate and his
association with the Flying Gang of Nassau live on. Bombarda's Revenge
