Description: A new slim can is coming soon but don't worry, the recipe hasn't changed.
For 206 years Gosling's Black Seal Rum has been searching for the perfect mate, often paired with ginger beer that's too sweet or too spicy. So Gosling's Stormy Ginger Beer was developed with one thing in mind, to be the ideal partner to Black Seal Rum and make the most harmonious Dark 'n' Stormy cocktail you'll ever drink.
Gosling's Stormy Ginger Beer, its official name, took well over a year to formulate and perfect. "We needed to hit the perfect balance between sweetness and spiciness," explained Malcolm Gosling, 7th generation President of the renowned rum maker, Gosling's Export (Bermuda) Limited. "Our objective was to create a ginger beer that, when paired with our award winning Black Seal Rum, would produce the absolute perfect Dark 'n' Stormy." The Dark 'n' Stormy, a classic mixture of ginger beer and Black Seal Rum, is Bermuda's official national cocktail and has become wildly popular in the U.K. However, its taste can vary due to confusion over which ginger beer to use. "Gosling's Stormy Ginger Beer is the product we recommend for the ultimate Dark 'n' Stormy," Gosling adds.
Gosling's Ginger Beer is a refreshing, zesty soft drink by itself, as well as the perfect mate to Gosling's Black Seal Rum.
Review: Great product! Not your usual ginger beer - fantastic when drunk on its own but add it to Goslings Black Seal rum in the correct proportions and it is a perfect drink for the winter... Or indeed any time of year!!! Thoroughly tested and wholeheartedly recommended!
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.
