Grog To Go: Dark ‘n Stormy In A Can!

June 29, 2012

Words by Jesse Serwerโ€”

If you’re anything like us, you’ve already spent more than a few nights this summer throwing back glasses of our favorite (reallyโ€”we had it at No. 1 on our Toppa Top 10 summer coolers and cocktails) summer drink, the dark and stormy. We’ve definitely noticed a general upswing in consumption of the Bermuda-born, rum-and-ginger-beer combo, and the people at Gosling’s, makers of the dark and stormy’s preferred rum Black Seal (legally, it’s only a dark and stormy if it’s made with Gosling’s), have stepped their game up accordingly.

Gosling’s now has its own Stormy ginger beer (available in 12 oz. cans, and 1-liter bottles, in regular and diet), developed specifically “to be the ideal partner to Black Seal Rum and make the most harmonious Dark โ€˜n Stormy youโ€™ll ever drink.” To that they’ve just added a ready-to-drink Dark n’ Stormy, in 8.4-ounce cans made with Black Seal rum and ginger beer, with 9% alcohol content. The canned cooler has been introduced in Bermuda and about 16 US statesโ€”though we’re still waiting for it to reach our liquor store. (Believe us, we’d have noticed).
