i.e. Gosling’s Black Seal Rum and GoslingR17;s Stormy Ginger Beer in a perfectly carbonated, 9% alcohol drink that’s 100% popular. And 0% malt-based! Plus, it’s the authentic Dark ’n Stormy cocktail so there’s zero compromise in taste. It’s the genuine article with no mixing, no ice required. Pop open a cold one for an instant party. No glass, no ice; just fast, frigid and flavourful. The Dark ‘n Stormy had its start in the highly successful ginger beer factory run as a subsidiary to the Royal Naval Officer’s Club. It wasn’t long before it was discovered that a splash of the local Black Seal Rum was just what the piquant ginger beer was missing. The name is said to have originated when an old sailor, holding aloft the thunderhead in a glass, observed that the drink was the ”colour of a cloud only a fool or a dead man would sail under”. Probably followed by, ”Barman, I’ll have another - Dark ’n Stormy”.
