Dark & Stormy
Where is the cocktail from?
When is it?
There has been a lot of competition regarding the rights of Dark N’ Stormy. The Gosling Brothers distillery claims right to the name “Dark N’ Stormy and the original recipe. Those rights demanding that you need to use Goslings Black Seal Dark Rum as the rum in your Dark N’ Stormy. They started producing back in 1860 and since then they have had these rights. The spicy cocktail has developed in a lot of different varieties. Nowadays it's made with all kinds of dark rum and different Ginger Beers. However, the original one is still the one made with Goslings Black Seal.
Gosling Brothers Ltd. was started in 1806 by the Gosling brothers. They started with £ 10,000 in cash and sailed from England. They dreamed of creating a trading empire in the New World (America). They stopped in Bermuda after crossing the Atlantic. Here they decided to stay and try their luck in St George’s seaport. The rest is history and they invented the famous and awarded Black Seal Rum.
Gosling Brothers Ltd. still has patented the name Dark N ‘Stormy officially.
Where is the cocktail from? London, England
When is was Bramble invented? 1984. Invented and created by the legendary London bartender Dick Bradsell who also is the father of the great Espresso Martini. This cocktail is named after the British word for a blackberry bush and it is also this berry that characterize the fresh spring cocktail.
Fun facts: The blackberry bush grows wild throughout England and is actually considered a weed.
The Bramble cocktail has since it’s the invention, spread across the globe for its freshness and fruity flavours. Gin based cocktails are often difficult to balance, but this cocktail is nice and easy to mix. It’s far easier to balance than similar gin cocktails like “The Gin Fizz”.
Where is the cocktail from? Sao Paulo in Brazil. It is their national drink.
When was the cocktail Caipirinha invented? Once again, there is much doubt about its true origin. According to one of the legends was the first mix in 1918. It contained, however, Cachaca, lime, a variant of onion and honey. It was created to fight the Spanish Flu. One day a bartender chose to mix it without onions and honey, but instead a few teaspoons cane sugar and ice. Of course, that tasted a lot better. That way it became the lovely Caipirinha we know today.
Fun facts: Caipirinha is made with Brazilian rum Cachaca. It differs from Rum and has its own characteristic flavour. Traditional rum is produced from waste product molasses. Cachaca is not produced from Molasses but from sugar cane juice. That gives Cachaca a sweeter taste. Another difference is, of course, the difference of the climate which affects the sugar production
The names Caipirinha comes from “Caipira” which is a term for Portuguese dialect spoken by incarnated Brazilians in Sao Paulo. You are a “Caipira” if you don’t fancy the big city life, but prefers life in the wild.
