The Original Gosling.

The story of Goslings Rum dates back to 1806 when James Gosling, who was sent out to the sea by his father, headed towards Virginia, with 10.000 pounds Sterling worth of Wines and Spirits. After 91 days, the charter on the ship Mercury James had to settle on Bermuda, where he opened a Wine and Spirits shop.

James Gosling returned to England in 1824 to open a shop with his brother Ambrose, a shop the Goslings maintain to this day. Their first Rum was produced decades later, in 1863, called the Black Seal — Rum that is synonymous with Bermuda, where it's produced. Today, the 7th generation Goslings lead the family business, in Bermuda, and are the largest exporter of any Bermuda-made product, as well as the only company that blends and bottles on the island.

Goslings Black Seal Rum consists of distillates that were aged independently in ex-Bourbon casks. They have been triple-distilled using a combination of pot stills and continuous stills, and blended together according to the secret family recipe from the 1850s. The generations of experience has resulted in a Rum of exceptional quality and they have earned multiple awards to prove it — including a Gold Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, among several other platinum and gold wins. The Black Seal is great to sip with a cigar or mix with various cocktails.

Smartass Corner
The name comes from the black wax they used to seal their 'Old Rum' champagne bottles. Try it with their signature Dark ‘n’ Stormy cocktails: 2 oz. Gosling’s Black Seal Rum, 1 oz. Lime Juice, 0.5 oz. Sugar Syrup, Gosling’s Ginger Beer. Shake ingredients except ginger beer with ice and strain over ice into a highball glass. Top with ginger beer and garnish with a lime wedge.
