A Blast from the Past

plymouth1Meet Ambrose Gosling, (1787 – 1857) - first generation of the family that still own Goslings Rum out of Bermuda. He'll explain why the Rum Punch was the official drink of the founding fathers, and explain the laborious way of making it in a song written by Ben Franklin and irreverently set to the 100th psalm!

Enjoy this historic drink at WBC made simply--Goslings Black Seal Rum and a can of delicious Goslings ginger beer, made right here in Worcester by Polar Beverages. (And if you make it at home later...raise your glass towards Bermuda!)

Ambrose Gosling will also sing songs of rum with his concertina. His enthusiasm is--well, intoxicating!
