Gosling's Family Reserve Rum or Old Rum

This deep, dark secret rum that Goslings have enjoyed privately for generations is now available. 

Appropriately called Gosling’s Family Reserve Old Rum, it is crafted from the same incomparable Bermuda blend as the renowned Goslings Black Seal Rum. It is aged in dark barrels even longer, for over 20 years, until it acquires an extra luscious, nuanced complexity much like a rare Scotch or Cognac. Consider it the ultimate sipping rum. 

Each bottle is carefully hand labelled, dipped in wax, numbered, encircled with a metal band, then placed in a decorative black box.

Bermuda Rum History

The history of Black Seal Rum and the Gosling family started in the spring of 1806 when James Gosling set out from the UK with GBP 10,000 in merchandise bound for America. After 3 months of navigation on calm waters the boat docked in St. Georges, Bermuda. James was joined by his brother Ambrose and in 1824 they opened their iconic first shop on Front Street in Hamilton and it remains in the same location today. The first barrels of distillate rum arrived in 1857 and the brothers experimented with various blending techniques to produce their world famous Black Seal Rum 3 years later.


They didn’t call it Black Seal at first, in fact up until the First World War it was sold from the barrel, and folks brought in bottles for a fill up of “Old Rum”, so called because of its distinctive smoothness.

Eventually the black rum was sold in champagne bottles, reclaimed from the British Officer’s Mess, and the corks sealed with black sealing wax. Pretty soon people began to ask for the “Black Seal”. Many years later a play on words and images gave birth to the little, barrel juggling “Black Seal”

Gosling’s Black Seal Rum was awarded the PLATINUM MEDAL at the World Spirits Championships in 1999. Scoring 96 out of a possible 100 points and recognised as a Best Buy. Black Seal was described as “superlative”. This is the largest international spirits judging in North America, with all tastings sponsored by the Beverage Testing Institute, Inc. (BTI). The judges said “Deep, assertive and highly flavoured. Very fragrant with herbal sharpness. At the finish there is a softness and elegance. A most complex and unusual spirit”

It is Bermuda's most widely exported product and considered the nation's national drink.

The Gosling business is the oldest business in Bermuda today and is still owned and managed by the seventh generation.
