Dark N Stormy

As we count down to the 22nd Annual Destination & Travel Foundation Dinner, we wanted to take the time out, similar to yesterdays post to honor some of the contributions of our amazing partners that not only support the industry on this occasion, but in fact year round.

Each year we look to have a little bit of local flavor at the event from our participating destinations. This year we are proud and very excited to to have on hand not just a local favorite, but the official drink of a nation from our colleagues at the Bermuda Tourism Authority.

As the spirit sponsor - Bermuda Tourism will be serving up Dark n Stormy - the "national" drink of the island country of Bermuda. The Dark n Stormy is also well-known as the sailors cocktail of choice. Now why is that important you ask? As you may or may not have known, Bermuda recently won the bid to be home of the 35th America's Cup in 2017 - and they will play host to the America's Cup World Series Racing Event October 16-18, 2015.

Bermuda Tourism Authority are a marketing partner with America's Cup and Goslings is the official rum and ginger beer of America's Cup.
