Goslings Rum Showcased at NFL Charity Golf Outing

By October 30, 2020Connecticut, Top News

Goslings Rum partnered with the National Football League (NFL) during their annual Connecticut Alumni charity golf classic at The Country Club of Darien in Darien on Sept. 28. Goslings ran the “Ace Your Way to Bermuda Program,” where if a participant made a hole in one, they won a free trip to Bermuda, home of the rum. On the par three, the tasting team was serving Dark ’N’ Stormys made with Goslings Black Seal Rum and Goslings Stormy Ginger Beer; Bermuda Mules made with Goslings Gold Seal Rum and Goslings Stormy Ginger Beer; and the Dark ’N’ Stormy ready-to-drink canned cocktails. “There were about 140 golfers at the tournament and they loved the Goslings Rum. After the tournament, we also served the same cocktails at the awards ceremony and auction,” said Michael Barit of Castle Brands. The Goslings Rum line includes Goslings Black Seal Rum, Goslings Gold Seal Rum, Goslings Black Seal 151 Rum and Goslings Family Reserve Old Rum. The rum has a storied history starting in 1806, when James Gosling, the oldest son of wines and spirits merchant William Gosling, set out bound for America. After 91 desperate days on becalmed seas, they put in at the nearest port, St. George’s, Bermuda, where the rum’s story began.
