Goslings Black Seal Rum
Gosling’s Black Seal Rum is the original Bermuda rum. Bermuda’s National Drink, the classic Dark ‘n Stormy, is made with Gosling’s Black Seal Rum, ginger beer and a squeeze of lime.
Black Seal has a rich, intricate flavour, well balanced and nuanced with butterscotch, vanilla and caramel. Or, as expressed by the Beverage Tasting Institute when they awarded it their highest honour, the Platinum Medal: ‘Deep, assertive and highly flavoured: very fragrant with herbal sharpness. At the finish there is a softness and elegance, a most complex, unusual spirit.
40% ABV 70cl or 5cl miniatures.
Super-premium Gosling’s Black Seal Bermuda Rum is made from a Gosling’s family recipe dating back over two centuries and comprises of independently aged distillates aged in once-used, charred, American oak bourbon casks. The smooth, full flavour is the result of a careful blend of aged pot and continuous still distillates. One imparts flavour; the other a subtle elegance. Together they work wonders.
It is used in all walks of Bermudian culture from cooking to christening a new home and to date it is Bermuda’s most exported product.
