Gosling’s Ltd. Has been around since the year ‘dot’, so it should not be a surprise that they have been a sponsor of the World Rugby Classic for many of those years. They are delighted to continue this relationship as beer, wines, and spirits sponsor for the 2021 World Rugby Classic. You will not have experienced the Classic without indulging in a Dark n’Stormy TM or two! Gosling’s is not only the provider of the Dark with Gosling’s Black Seal Rum ®; they also provide the Stormy with Gosling’s Stormy Ginger Beer ®, which adds a new twist to the expression “still waters run deep”; a subtle revelation after you have enjoyed their “South Shore”.
Stop by one of their two Hamilton retail stores; the Wine Shop on Dundonald Street, or their Flagship store on the corner of Front Street and Queen Street. Either location will show you the extent of their portfolio of wines, spirits and beers. With a temperature controlled wine cellar storage for their customers, an “Olde World” style tasting facility and free deliveries island-wide, you have a selection and customer service better than almost any cosmopolitan counterpart.
