Is there are rum distillery in Bermuda?

We're going to be in Bermuda next week and wondered if there is a run distillery in Bermuda (maybe Gosling's?). If so, do they give tours? Thanks

I am just back from Bermuda. Yes, there seems to

be a rum distillery in Bermuda. Goslings.

I don't know of any tours.

I did enjoy the Dark and Stormy drinks though.

You can buy it to take home at the duty free.

(I also brought home the Ginger Beer to go with it).

I may be wrong but I don't think there's a rum distillery in Bermuda. They may bottle the rum and I know that Bacardi has an office there, but I think that's all.

Have to agree with Senior65, as not aware of an actual distillery there, but Goslings Rums are definitely the brand of choice! In fact, Goslings brand rum is available in many areas of the US also, especially east coast areas, so you may wish to look for it. Nothing compares to the Black Seal rum they make.

Mmmmm ... the only thing better than the red bean soup was the Bermuda onion soup laced with a little Black Seal rum!

Anywhere that serves fish chowder will also have rum and sherry peppers on hand for you to add as you like.

I've taken a look at Gosling's website and it doesn't say where they get the distillate from. Possibly, Barbados or the U.S. or even the U.K. They blend and bottle but do not distill. Perhaps we should ask them.

I have sent e-mails this AM to GOSLINGS EXPORT BERMUDA LIMITED and also to Mr Holmes, the GXB Brands Mgr. As soon as I receive any answers to our queries, I will post them on the TA forum.
