A Dark and Stormy (or Dark 'n' Stormy) is a highball cocktail that is trademarked by Gosling's Export Limited of Bermuda, makers of Goslings Black Seal Rum. The Dark 'N Stormy is Gosling's signature drink. This classic drink is popular worldwide, especially in many British Commonwealth countries, such as Bermuda and Australia. It consists of Gosling's Black Seal Rum and ginger beer over ice. It is optionally accompanied by a slice of lime.
Bermuda has played host to Australian rugby players in its annual Classic Tournament since the early 1970s. It is popularly believed that following one of these tournaments, the cocktail was brought back to Australia, where it also proved popular. In Queensland, Australia, Bundaberg Distilling Company Pty Ltd, distillers of Bundaberg Rum have produced a pre-mixed version of the Dark and Stormy since 1993. It is sold in stubbies and 375ml cans. The ginger beer component is produced locally by Bundaberg Brewed Drinks Pty Ltd.
United States 
The Dark 'N Stormy gained popularity through the sailing community up and down the east coast of the US, having been brought home by various sailors who frequented Bermuda. Most bars in port towns from Portland, ME to Newport, RI to Annapolis, MD and beyond have the Dark N Stormy on their menu, made with various brands of Ginger Beer.
