Black Seal has understandably become synonymous with Bermuda. It is the essential additive to Bermuda fish chowder, adds the island touch to Bermuda Rum Swizzle, is the tempest in Bermuda's favorite cocktail - the Dark 'n Stormy - and is the most widely exported Bermuda product. Black Seal has a rich, intricate flavor, well balanced and nuanced with butterscotch, vanilla and carmel. Or, as expressed up by the Beverage Tasting Institute when they recently awarded it their highest honor, the Platinum Medal: "Deep, assertive and highly flavoured. Very fragrant with herbal sharpness. At the finish there is a softness and elegance. A most complex, unusual spirit." We were pleased, but hardly surprised. After all, we've been at this awhile.
