The Sparkling Wine – Verre Anglais

The Story of Verre Anglais travels back to the age-old question of who invented Champagne, the English or the French, whatever your answer, the English are known to have invented the first bottle strong enough to hold the sparkling wine inside, referred to as Verre Anglais (English Glass).

Verre Anglais produces Cremant de Bourgogne in limited quantities in the region of Chablis in France.

The Rum – Goslings

In the spring of 1806 James Gosling, the oldest son of William Gosling, a wines and spirits merchant, set out from Gravesend, Kent, England on the ship Mercury, with £10,000 sterling worth of merchandise, bound for America. After ninety-one desperate days on becalmed seas, their charter ran out, and they put in at the nearest port, St. George’s, Bermuda. And the rest, as they say, is history. Delicious, deep, dark history.

In 1824 James and his brother Ambrose rented a shop on Front Street in the new capital of Hamilton for £25 a year. The Goslings maintained a store at this location for 127 years.

In 1857 the firm, known as Gosling and Son, was renamed Gosling Brothers. After much experimentation in the blending process, the distinctive black rum destined to be Black Seal was formulated and offered for sale.

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 would be 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”. Goslings Rum Story Page
