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.
