Of the rather limited selection of good rums available here, Goslings is an everyday favorite of mine as well.
I have fond memories of having finished the Bermuda Ocean Race
in 1990 and hanging out for a week with my crew at the St. Georges Dinghy
and Sport Club. Goslings had scheduled a free "Dark and Stormy" promotion at the club for the racers several days after the finish, but timed it poorly... most of the hard-core racers had already headed back to the US. Goslings showed up with a bottomless supply of cases of rum and ginger beer
, and the official Goslings "bimbette" plied we few remaining more casual race
participants with free drinks all evening. It was the 4th of July, and -- after the sun went down -- we tipsy Yanks were lamenting the the absence of festivities there in the remotist reaches of the former British empire when fireworks erupted across the harbor. We had forgotten about the presence of the US naval facility on the island, and our countrymen were celebrating.
All in all, an evening worth remembering!
