70cl Bottle £21.46 In Stock
Description: For generations, the Gosling name has stood for smooth, complex and decidedly dark rums. But times, and tastes, change.
So, to satisfy the increasingly vociferous requests for a Gosling's Rum with a lighter body, Goslings present Gosling's Gold Bermuda Rum, their first new product in 108 years.
Not to be mistaken for ordinary amber rums, Goslings was years in the making, sipping and perfecting. The result is a mellow, elegant product that lives up to its impressive lineage.
By using the finest distillates in strict accordance with techniques handed down over six generations, they finally created a distinctive lighter rum that is impressing demanding rum enthusiasts everywhere.
This is a well balanced blend of pot still distillates and continuous still distillates. The majority aged five years. This unique, proprietary blend is what sets Gosling's Gold apart from others.
You'll find it has a rich, golden amber colour, a nose of vanilla, apricot, mango and a lightly smoked oak character. The taste is smooth and light with hints of citrus/tropical flavours and nutty undertones.
Unusually versatile, it can be enjoyed straight, on-the-rocks, with ginger ale or as a mixer to enhance any rum recipe.

Gosling Brothers Ltd. imported its first barrels of Caribbean rum into Bermuda in 1860. Numerous different blends were tried until one was formulated and deemed ideal.
The result was a well-aged, extremely dark rum, which the firm dubbed "Old-Rum". For over 50 years the rum was sold only by draught, with local patrons bring in their own bottles to be filled. The rum continued to be sold exclusively out of the barrel until the First World War, when the company began filling champagne bottles reclaimed from the British Officer's mess. The corks were secured in place with the use of black sealing wax, prompting people to refer to the brand as "Black Seal."
It wasn't until many years later that Gosling Brothers adopted the image of the barrel juggling "black seal" on its labels. To this day, Gosling's Black Seal Rum is created according to the original family recipe from a premium blend of three-year old rums.
