Long Description:

In 1806 James Gosling sailed from England with a cargo of spirits bound for the American colonies. His ship was beset by calm, his charter expired, and so he sailed for the nearest port of St. George, Bermuda. There he opened a store which was the start the Gosling Rum Company. Today Gosling Rum is Bermuda's leading export.

In front of the company store on Front Street is a mosaic of the clipper ship Mercury which recalls the company's past and appears on their bottles of gold rum. The rectangular mosaic is 3' long and 2.5' high.
