The name Pig & Whistle has had a place in British history ever since daily rum rations were issued to all men aboard Royal Navy ships in 1655.
As the story goes, it was the job of the junior midshipman to go below to draw the rum for the shop's company from the barrels - called "pigs". One day the junior officer arrived on deck drunk with the rum for the duty officer of the day. The next day the officer ordered the midshipman to keep whistling until he returned on deck with the rum, this way he wouldn't be able to drink while carrying on his task. Therefore, the name "Pig & Whistle".
If you happen to visit England, you will find many fine pubs and taverns around the British coast and sea ports called the "Pig & Whistle"
