A sweet golden amber Rum from Bermuda’s Spirit pioneer.

In 1806, James Gosling set out from England with an inventory of goods bound for America to sell. Delays ensued in route and the ship’s charter (a license to sail and conduct business) expired, so the ship docked at Bermuda to sort out the paperwork. By the time the ship was ready to continue its voyage to America, James had decided to remain. He opened up the famous Goslings storefront that remains to this day. And since his father was a Wine and Spirits merchant back home, embarking on a new venture of producing quality Rum was a natural next step. Today, Goslings Bermuda Rums are famous around the world.

Goslings Gold Seal Rum was first released in 2016 — at the time it was the first new Rum from Goslings in more than one hundred years. It is blend of Rums from both pot-still and continuous column stills. And while there is no official age statement, the majority of the Spirits was aged for five years in once-used white oak casks. This yields a strong, refined, and smooth amber Rum that sings in cocktails and charms as a sipper in the glass all by itself.

Smartass Corner:
The famous image of the seal on Goslings Rums is a play on words. Originally, James Gosling would keep the Rum in casks. People would bring bottles to be filled. After each filling, James would dip the necks in black sealing wax. Thus, their first product was called "Black Seal" Rum.

If the center of our galaxy had a signature scent, it would be Rum. Yup, astronomers studying a giant cloud in the Milky Way found a substance called ethyl formate, a chemical that smells suspiciously like Rum.
Mount Gay Rum is the oldest existing Rum company in the World dating back to 1705. This is also the year Guy Fawkes tried to blow up Britain’s Parliament.
Rum (usually) comes from molasses, the sweet and syrupy residue of refining sugarcane into sugar. Molasses is over 50% sugar, but it also contains significant amounts of minerals and other trace elements, contributing to the final flavor.
Rum used to be accepted as a form of currency in Europe and Australia, a practice we should probably bring back into fashion.
A little bit of etymology; nobody really knows where the word Rum comes from. The most popular suggestions are Rum (the Romani word for 'potent'), Rumbullion (an uproar), Saccharum (sugar in Latin), and Rummer (a Dutch drinking glass).
Rum is a sugar cane based spirit, primarily made in the Caribbean and Latin America, but you can really find Rum in many corners of the world.
