— Black Seal® —

Our family has never been one to pursue volume at the expense of quality. For nearly two centuries our rare Black Seal Bermuda Rum has been aged slowly in restricted quantities.

Gosling’s Black Seal has a rich, intricate flavour, well balanced and nuanced with butterscotch, vanilla and caramel. Impressive enough to earn the Beverage Testing Institute’s highest honour, the Platinum Medal. We were pleased, but hardly surprised. After all, we’ve been at this awhile.

Today, unlike most spirits, Black Seal includes products of both pot stills, as used in fine Cognacs, and continuous stills, as used in grappa. One imparts flavour, the other yields a subtle elegance. Together they work wonders.

We aren’t averse to offering occasional variations on our classics. In typical Gosling fashion, we didn’t just dash out a new product. It took several attempts and repeated blending and tastings (tough work, but someone had to do it). We proudly arrived at a muscular, but refined 140 proof rum that not only won praise from homeward bound visitors, but also from competition judges. Gosling’s 151 proof Black Seal Rum enjoys the same great popularity through its inimitable flavour, characteristic taste and unique quality. This lip-tingling spirit makes an ideal complement to any exotic, sun-drenched libation and is excellent in desserts that call for flaming.

Black Seal has become synonymous with Bermuda. It’s the national drink and the island nations most widely exported product.
