Dark 'n' Stormy

The Dark 'n' Stormy is a cocktail whose name and appearance immediately arouse interest. The combination of spicy ginger beer and rich, dark rum creates a visual representation reminiscent of a sea darkened by clouds in a gathering storm. The name "Dark 'n' Stormy" is said to have come from a naval officer who, after observing the drink, remarked that it "looked like the kind of cloud only a fool or a dead man would sail over". This cocktail has become a modern classic over the years and is known for its balance of sweetness, acidity and spice. It is a simple yet powerful drink that is easy to make in any bar, but comes with a rich tradition and an aura of adventure and romance.

  1. Fill a highball glass with ice cubes.

As co-founder of UNKNOWN Lands | Spirits and a passionate gin maker, I have turned my love for gin into projects such as "The Gin High Tea". My journey began in the world of film and design and led me to a deep passion for fine spirits. I firmly believe that cocktails don't have to be complicated or extravagant. In my book "The Gin High Tea - Gin Cocktails", I aim to inspire people to create simple yet flavorful cocktails. For me, the excitement lies in the imperfect variations that help us to discover new things.
