SCURVY AWARENESS DAY – GOSLING’S SIDECAR

” A lemon a day…and rum…keeps the scurvy at bay”


This is a day to be aware of scurvy, the disease that afflicted many a sailor  on long voyages pre-18th century because of poor diet and Vitamin C deficiencies.

So this 2nd day of May 2016, we, the good respectful sailors that we are, remember those poor souls  by adding a dose of lemon to our tot of rum.
