The story of the Goslings Rum dates back to 1806 when James Gosling, who was sent out to the sea by his father, heading towards Virginia, with 10.000 pounds Sterling worth of Wines and Spirits. After 91 days the charter on the ship Mercury ran out and 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 — a 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 said island.

After 156 years Malcolm Gosling, the family's patriarch decided to let the old family secret out of the barrel and share it with the Rum-iverse. Goslings Family Reserve Rum is created from the same blend of ingredients as their Black Seal, but aged between 16 and 19 years in once used charred oak barrel for a luscious well-balanced complexity reminding of a rare Scotch or Cognac. Goslings Family Reserve is an extremely rare Rum that has earned a Double Gold Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition and named #1 Aged Rum in the World by the Caribbean Journal, among several other awards. It is an ultimate sipping that pairs perfect with a rich dessert or a cigar. 

Smartass Corner:
The Family Reserve is made in very small batches, hand numbered and bottled as was used to be over a 100 years ago — in Champagne bottles and sealed with wax.
