History

Another classic cocktail the Dark ‘n Stormy’s origins are just after World War 1. In a ginger beer factory, owned by the Royal Navy, the sailors soon put two and two together and made a Dark ‘n Stormy.

The cocktails name the Dark ‘n Stormy, was coined by a sailor who, while quaffing the cocktail, noted that it was the color of a cloud “only a fool or a dead man would sail under”.
