Papa Seal Returns.

In 1806 James Gosling was sent out to sea by his father with a hold full of Wines and Spirits headed towards Virginia. After the charter on the ship ran out James had to settle on Bermuda, where he opened a Wine and Spirits shop. Upon his return to England in 1824 he set up 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.

Named after the patriarch, president, and CEO Malcolm "Papa Seal" Gosling, this single-barrel expression is the second incarnation of their glorious range-topping Rum. The pot and column-still Rums are first aged on their own between 10 and 21 years. They then get blended together and sent on a honeymoon trip for another 2 years ― love and marriage, as they say. Well, this trip lets those juices get to know themselves intimately in those tight, confined spaces of their American white oak barrels. After the Bermuda air has worked its magic, they march out into the world in their elegant and mellow glory, all 1500 bottles of them.

Rum used to be accepted as a form of currency in Europe and Australia, a practice we should probably bring back into fashion.
Rum is why we measure alcohol proof. To make sure Rum wasn’t watered down, it had to be ‘proven’ by soaking gunpowder with it. If it was ‘overproof’ (higher than 57.15 % vol.), then the gunpowder would ignite, but if it wouldn’t, it was ‘underproof.’

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 (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.
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.
