Ah, genetics. Besides certain physical characteristics, men of the Gosling family have also passed along strong personality traits. Most noticeably, bullheadedness.
With a world begging for more of their rare Bermuda rums, they have obstinately refused to accelerate the secret family process in the interest of mere volume. Which is why you’ll find this the most complex, refined family of rums you have ever sipped. Presuming, that is, you can find it.
As one of the members of the seventh generation to steer the Bermudian family business since its 1806 inception, Nancy Lloyd Gosling is President and C.E.O. of Gosling Brothers Limited and Gosling’s Limited. Nancy is the innovator and driving force behind the company’s local expansion in the wine, beer and spirits business.
Before her appointment as the company’s first female President and C.E.O., Nancy received a Bachelor of Commerce from Dalhousie University and later a C.G.A. title.
Nancy is the mother of two children.
Charles Richard Gosling is Vice President and Managing Director of Gosling Brothers Limited and Gosling’s Limited. Grandson of Ambrose Tucker Gosling, Charles is responsible for the company’s local marketing initiative and Bermuda Duty Free Limited, a subsidiary of Gosling Brothers Limited that includes the island’s two duty free stores located at Bermuda International Airport.
Receiving a Bachelor degree from Dalhousie University, Charles went on to become another member of the seventh generation to enter the family business. Amongst his life achievements is his Presidency of the Bermuda Chamber of Commerce for four consecutive years, a length of office only shared by one other in the 100 years of the Chamber. Charles is married with two children.
A third member of the seventh generation, Edmund Malcolm Gosling has been appointed to manage the development and export of Gosling’s Rums. As President of Gosling’s Export (Bermuda) Limited and Vice President and Managing Director of Gosling Brothers Limited and Gosling’s Limited, he brings an abiding respect for the brand heritage to the table, but he also brings a contemporary sense of marketing and business acumen.
Malcolm attended Boston College and earned a Bachelor’s degree in Economics, then returned to join the family business. Almost immediately he realized the considerable export potential of the locally popular Gosling’s Black Seal Rum. In 1985 he became Director of Gosling Brothers Limited where he oversaw domestic product and sales operations while also mapping a strategy for eventual entry into overseas markets.
In 2003 he finalized the formation of Gosling’s Export ( Bermuda ) Limited where, as President, he launched his long-planned strategy to expand the family brand worldwide into new markets with new products.
As President and CEO of the newly formed Gosling-Castle Partners, Inc. in the U.S. –not to mention relocating with his wife and two children to Boston—Malcolm has taken a determined step to ensure that the Gosling’s name and products continue to grow in popularity.
