Hamilton Princess & Goslings Join EcoSPIRITS

May 3, 2022

The Hamilton Princess and Goslings are supporting the ecoSPIRITS Climate Partner Program, with Goslings to offer its rums in low-waste ecoTOTE format and the Hamilton Princess serving two special sustainable cocktails for the months of May, June and July.

A spokesperson said, “To mark the local launch of closed loop service in Bermuda, ecoSPIRITS and its licensed operator, Bermuda Gin Co, have teamed up with two iconic Bermudian brands, Goslings Rum and the Hamilton Princess & Beach Club. As part of the launch, Goslings will join the ecoSPIRITS Climate Partner Program and offer its best-selling rums in low-waste ecoTOTE format across the island.

“The Hamilton Princess, Bermuda’s most storied hotel, is one of ecoSPIRITS Bermuda’s first venue partners and will offer a special celebration menu of sustainable Bermuda Gin Co. and Goslings Rum cocktails through July 2022.

“Goslings is Bermuda’s oldest business and the largest exporter of a Bermuda-made product. Owned and operated by the seventh and eighth generations of the Gosling family, Goslings is a world-renown rum producer that operates Bermuda’s largest and only solar-powered spirits blending and bottling facility.

“As part of the new partnership, Goslings is hosting and operating ecoPLANT No. 026 on behalf of ecoSPIRITS Bermuda, acting as an expert operational partner for closed loop spirits processing for Bermuda.

“Goslings rums are based on family recipes and are blended by hand in Bermuda. The famed Goslings Black Seal Rum, itself from a 150-year old recipe, is the official rum of Bermuda, having long ago become synonymous with the island. Black Seal is an essential ingredient in Bermuda fish chowder and the spirit of Bermuda’s favourite cocktail, the Dark ‘n Stormy.

“Goslings’ Black Seal, Amber and Silver Rums will all be available in ecoTOTE format across Bermuda from the beginning of May. The transition away from traditional single use glass packaging will allow Goslings to eliminate an estimated 91.3% of the carbon footprint associated with packaging and distribution of their award-winning rums in Bermuda.

“Another Bermuda icon, the grand pastel-pink Hamilton Princess, has been a landmark on the waterfront of Bermuda’s capital city since 1885. Managed by Fairmont Hotels & Resorts, which is a subsidiary of Accor Hotels, the ‘Pink Palace’ has played host to Bermuda’s most discerning visitors for more than a century.

“With over 400 guest rooms, as well as a full service marina and private beach club, the hotel plays an important role in both business and leisure in Bermuda. Surrounded by lush greenery, Hamilton Princess is a short walk to downtown Hamilton. Renowned for its attentive levels of service, culinary and beverage offerings the Hamilton Princess is able to honour the fragrances and flavours of Bermuda.

“To celebrate the launch of ecoSPIRITS Bermuda, the Hamilton Princess will offer two special sustainable cocktails for the months of May, June and July: a sustainable version of the iconic Dark ‘n Stormy Cocktail with Goslings Black Seal Rum and a sustainable Bermuda Gin & Tonic with White Roof Gin from Bermuda Gin Co.

“For each sustainable cocktail served, ecoSPIRITS, Goslings and Bermuda Gin Co. will fund the removal of one kilogram of ocean waste from marine environments under the ecoSPIRITS Oceans Program. The collaboration is expected to remove up to two tonnes of ocean waste over the three-month launch period.

“The partnership builds on ecoSPIRITS’ longstanding relationship with Accor Hotels, which has included similar collaborations with Raffles Hotel Singapore and The Savoy Hotel London.”
