How life changes. Angostura Bitters were originally made by a surgeon, Dr Siegert, for his medical practice back in 1824. I doubt he had any inkling that the business would go on to change so radically- not only for the obvious reasons, but also the business would move from Venezuela to Trinidad some 50 years later. They were more renowned for their aromatic bitters until roughly 1940 when a conscious decision to increase their expertise in and production of Rum was taken.
Citrus is dialled down here, but it remains fruity with fig and raisin. Still quite nutty, though.

Dark & Stormy Cocktail Recipe
Fans of the Moscow Mule, this one’s for you. The Dark ’n Stormy is a delicious, easy-to-make cocktail that features a refreshing trio of dark rum, ginger beer and lime, and it also goes down a lot easier than the name might imply. This popular cocktail is now found all over the world, but can be traced back to the island of Bermuda. Fun fact, it’s still Bermuda's national drink today! It was sailors who first enjoyed mixing rum with the stomach settling ginger ale, and technically a real Dark & Stormy can only be made with Bermuda’s own Gosling’s Black Seal Rum, with notes of caramel, vanilla and spice. However, if you’re simply looking to whip the best Dark & Stormy cocktail recipe up at home, feel free to use any dark rum (we’re not telling anyone!). Note that ginger ale is not a substitute for ginger beer. Ginger ale is just carbonated water that’s flavoured with ginger, like a soda. Ginger beer, on the other hand, is brewed and fermented and this will benefit your Dark & Stormy. We also call for a modest measure of lime juice, but feel free to add more if it suits your taste. Get mixing and set sail!
