Dark 'n' Stormy
Another Sucker Punch favourite for many reasons (mainly the rum!) but its history is truly fascinating.
The story of the Dark n’ Stormy begins in 1806 when Englishman James Gosling set sail for America. The son of wine and spirit merchants, he hoped to expand his family’s business in Virginia. But after three hard months at sea, Gosling resigned to a new home, parking his ship at a port in St. Georges, Bermuda. There he devised a recipe for aged black rum that, once popular, he began selling in old British champagne bottles which he sealed with black wax—hence Gosling’s Black Seal Rum.
Fast forward to 2020 and it is the national drink of Bermuda, it’s had quite a journey and it is now on our delivery menu! Fresh Lime juice, freshly pressed ginger juice (made in house) touch of sugar syrup and a dash bitters, lashings of Goslings Black Seal Rum topped with ginger beer, creates a deliciously bold drink. Perfect for the big rum drinkers!
