Goslings Black Seal rum is a unique blend by Gosling Brothers of Bermuda, the original recipe being a closely guarded family secret that has been handed down over many generations. Originally called "Old Rum" it was available on draught out of oak barrels, Finally, after World War One, Black Seal was sold in Champagne bottles, the most widely available bottle at the time. The cork was sealed with black sealing wax, hence the name Black Seal although the seal now appears on the label.
The signature serve is with ginger beer in a Dark 'n' Stormy. Interestingly, this cocktail is actually trademarked by the Gosling brothers.
Fruitcake, spice and herbal on the nose, stewed fruits and spices on the tongue and a spicy tangy finish.
